"The brilliant Nevada Base blend arpeggios, synth lines, house beats and live instrumentation with harmony vocals, plus flashes of New Order and The Beloved."

This is a pay what you want release (no minimum).
Low pounding tribal drums and percussion introduce Foresight - the sumptuous new single from Glaswegian electro outfit Nevada Base. The drums soon give way to bubbling synths, driving disco bass, and an irresistible vocal hook. B-side Hindsight retains the single’s tribal refrain before heading off on a trippy, low-tempo groove, while a remix from Magic Daddy (releases on Optimo Music / member of Machines In Heaven) takes the track into bass-led electro territory.
Nevada Base have been been busy since the release of their debut single Love In My Mind, taking to the T-Break Stage at T-in-the-Park, playing a sold-out show supporting New Build (featuring members of Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem), as well as roof-raising gigs up and down the UK alongside the likes of Metronomy, Silver Columns, Late of the Pier, Memory Tapes and others.
The band's original line up of Albert Kawmi (guitar and vocals) and Andrew Brown (bass) has also grown to include Calum Muir (drums) and James Vorley (synths and backing vocals). The addition of drums to the band’s live performance adds an astonishing energy, displayed to full effect on Foresight. Kawmi's vocals travel from understated drawl to urgent command, Brown's bass keeps everything tied to a funk groove. Muir's drumming is tight and expressive, while Vorley knows how to reign his synths in then let them explode.
The single will be supported by live shows around the country including a launch party at Paradise in London on 30 April.
"Joining hands is all it takes to keep our enemies at bay. Don't be afraid."
