Ni is a four-headed monster. The big bad Ni has left the linear roads of the French department of Ain, in order to live in a complex world paced by electrical sounds and varying polyrhythms. In its temple, shouts of the quartet make the windows crack, a stunning nervousness makes the walls stand and, finally, the strong foundations remove from ages to come all doubts regarding the durability of all these things. Inside, it is always like a squall: children run in all directions and parents dance around the bonfire. The waltz, the 4/4 time signature and verse and chorus structures take one last breath before being burned to ashes at the core of this fire. After two EPs and many terrific tour dates in Europe that have almost broken the stages, it is time for Ni to release a new album. Ni invites all those who like frantic riffs to a huge party that celebrates a sweet barbarism. No reply is expected.
3 years after Les Insurgés de Romilly, and after having spent some time with PinioL, the band is coming back with the new album Pantophobie. While being faithful to his predecessors, but probably a bit darker, Pantophobie explores various fears as a main theme. The massive production is dedicated to head-banging. With this 4th release (2 EPs and 2 LPs), the quartet crushes their cigarettes very hard, dig a hole into the ground, and leave the listeners in ashes. The band recorded with Herve Faivre, from Igorrr, and worked with Rémy Boy (Gojira, Secret Chief, Ezekiel...) for the mix.
Being a very impressive live band, Ni leaves no chance to curious newbies nor to experimented listeners, and it’s with a real joy that we will meet again with one of the most fascinating instrumental bands from the French and European noise rock scene.
