NOUR is a 3-piece alternative-rock / punk band from Hull, England.
With influences spanning the alt-rock genre, the band produces a blend of familiar styles, with an added experimental twist, likened to Fugazi and Agent Orange.
Their eclectic live set encapsulates psych, shoegaze, hardcore punk, doom, and indie, alongside loud / quiet dynamics more reminiscent of ’90s rock. The band aims to evoke the spirit of their idols Hüsker Dü and Nirvana, without being merely another stale copycat. Contemporary British acts, such as Forever Cult and Basement, inspire not only a part of NOUR’s sound, but also their DIY ethic.
“NOUR craft rough and ready psychedelic force perfectly embodying Hull’s DIY ethic; championing fuzzy, shoegazing riffs and challenging instrumental soundscapes that clash against nifty progressive rock drums and emotive, raw vocal stylings. The threesome have emerged, and will doubtlessly join the city’s other alt-rock standouts by garnering national acclaim as we delve deeper into 2017.” – Dom Smith (Soundsphere Magazine)
