Today, Watford-born indie rock band Nervus releases their fourth LP,The Evil One, via queer, independent labelGet Better Records, and it feels different than any of their album releases have before. The circumstances less stable, the reactions less predictable, the future less certain. And Nervus feel free.

“We’ve abandoned all preconceptions about what success might look like as a band. And kind of abandoned the will to be successful in any way at all,” says frontwomanEm Foster. With a sound that injects vintage Americana and ‘70s power pop into their punk influences, the album rejects the band’s previous identity-based songwriting to explore the power of interdependence, with community and the earth. It’s their most self-assured and thought-provoking album yet, and it smashes through every limit Nervus had previously placed on themselves.

“That absence of interaction [during the pandemic] meant that we weren't feeling like we had to be a certain type of band,” Foster explains. “We just did whatever felt right when we were making the music, rather than playing the role that Nervus has played in the last five years of being a vaguely antagonistic, punk-leaning band.”
