‘Nazi Punks Fuck Off’ gets a new cover by shoegazin’ alt rockers NO SUN!

Salt Lake City’s NO SUN (Don’t Look Down Records) guested on IDIOTEQ in late 2015 with their single premiere. The incredible track still serves as one of the most captivating modern alt shoegazin’ jams we’ve hears since the 90s and both “Warm” EP and “If Only” LP released in early 2017 went further, shaping their emotional conscience, getting better with each listen. Just a couple of weeks since their debut album premiere, NO SUN are back with their own version of DEAD KENNEDYS classic “Nazi Punks Fuck Off”! Listen below.

Guitarist/ vocalist Jordon Strang shared the following:

“America has shown its very disgusting underbelly over the past few months, and I’m sure it will only get worse. Going to shows, and thel DIY community in general should be a place where everyone else feels safe, except for those that live to make others feel unsafe for something as simple as the color of their skin, their gender identity, or their sexual orientation. We covered this song to let everyone know that we think that Nazism and bigotry is not welcome and will not be tolerated within our fanbase or at any of our shows.”

Here’s the original:

Since their formation just a couple of years ago, Salt Lake City’s NO SUN have been quietly crafting loud, confident, and modern shoegaze. Originally a solo project for singer/ guitarist Jordon Strang to experiment with, No Sun has since grown into a nuanced and voluminous four piece. In the tradition of Swervedriver and Failure, and contemporaries like Nothing and Pity Sex, No Sun’s debut album ‘If Only’ swells with walls of reverb and texture. It’s shoegaze for those who can appreciate the loudest and dreamiest aspects of the genre. Lyrically, the album leans mostly toward introspection and existential doubt, and Jordon’s coping with depression, anxiety, and love.

‘If Only’ was released on January 20th on limited edition vinyl, as well as digitally. With a full slate of national touring in the works, and a history of playing alongside bands as diverse as True Widow, Foxing, and Creepoid, 2017 will prove to be a year filled with new music and touring for a young, yet quickly growing band.
