Shine Obscenity State
Passion, blood ties and cultural complexity drove the cinematic vision behind Nilly Brook‘s Obscenity State. Driven by her experience growing up in a family torn by revolution, Nilly became hyper-aware of the corruption of power in its various forms from an early age. Seeking clarity, she immersed herself in world politics, art, animation and music, processing and transforming the energies around her. What emerged was an evolving creative force culminating in Obscenity State’s debut EP Break the Mould due for release on May 21st 2019.
Poetically transcending the ages, Obscenity State transfix listeners with their unique blend of electronica, post-punk sonics, twisting female vocals and intense dance rhythms. Performing as a four-piece act, audio-reactive visuals, abstract art and animations are woven into their performance, submerging the audience into their alternative world.
Terry Burrows, coauthor with Daniel Miller of Mute: A Visual Document Shine by Obscenity State- “On this first release,Obscenity State have come up with a neatly individual take on post-punk. The classic sensibilities are all in place – the angst, the unpredictable sounds and clashing tones (think Factory/4AD/Mute) – but it’s been filtered through a lens of hypermodern electronics and production. Nilly Brook, who writes and produces most of the music, not only possesses an unusually soulful voice for this type of thing but she’s also an accomplished visual artist and animator. (The slick accompanying video is her own work.) All in all, it’s a confident debut that will leave you geeked to hear more”.
Parlophone Music Marketing- Krishma Kudhail “Obscenity State are creatively free spirits within their music, as they mesh together a mesmerising sound over electronic production accompanied by their artistic visuals”.
Antipole Producer – Paris Alexander “Obscenity State’s very high standard of musicianship and driving energy really shines through. I can see them going far!”.
