Nervous Dater

For a debut record, Don’t Be a Stranger finds Nervous Dater strutting with the composure of a sophomore release – everything locks into familiar, but engaging place. Anchored by Rachel Lightner’s self-assured delivery, this New York quartet seamlessly volleys between power pop shown in top form on album opener “Bad Spanish,” and buzzing indie, like on “Pigeon Language,” where Andrew Goetz’ percussive intro explodes into something more than the sum of its voracious, well-oiled parts. Recorded by Joe Reinhart (Hop Along) at The Headroom, the result is shimmering, self-aware, and organic, allowing the band’s melodic nuances and neuroses blast to the forefront. When it all adds up, Nervous Dater welcomes you in to their world – and it’s one you’ll recognize in no time.
