Nothing Places – No Time

Pitching up somewhere between Grizzly Bear and a less bombastic dEUS, Madrid’s Nothing Places offers up a veritable smorgasbord of wonky yet cinematic indie folk-pop.

Throughout the whole of his self-titled debut, Nothing Places’ main hombre Emilio Saiz exhibits an enviably varied range of skills; aside from intricate guitar work and exquisite arrangement flourishes, not least the ability to write interesting songs with a distinct perspective on humanity and our associated planetary predicament without ever becoming convoluted or hectoring.

On another note, the animated video for No Time (Yeyei Gomez), is frankly stunning, a visual poetry of the highest order.

Forget the 100 million euros, if we can find Madrid another Gareth Bale, can we have more of this please?
