Single Review: ' Endeavour' by Nomad Anthem
Nomad Anthem pop us on their shoulders and take us all on a journey of discovery…and from the very beginning you know that you’re in for a wild ride!
Boldly sustaining an unrelenting momentum, the Newcastle trio prove that they’re not afraid to take a plectrum to their genre and strum away for a blistering 2:32 until they have satisfied their hearts desires!
The result unleashed upon the world is new Single ‘Endeavour,’ a record that demonstrates tight musicianship, infused with a good helping of punky energy and a youthful, optimistic message.
Assembled in the April of 2019, North East, Pop-Punk trio Nomad Anthem are a band who endeavour to build a good amount of momentum for their energetic, live shows. Following a packed Newcastle gig at the Central Bar in Gateshead on the 3rd of August, the band are keen to showcase a proclivity for whipping up the audience into a frenzy of rebellious punk euphoria, which they intend to showcase all over the UK.
The lads have demolished several brick walls in order to successfully produce a jovial, pop-punk romper-stomper. And I’m loving every second!
Lyrically, the context of ‘Endeavour’ gives much needed optimism to inspire a generation facing creative struggles and uncertainty about their own place in the world.
Determination can be found in the concise lyrics half way through this track that speaks with a clear conscience, reminding us of the importance to not let any struggle with creativity get in the way of a passion for music.
With some strong influences from the California punk scene of the 90s, juxtaposed with the theme of this track. Lead singer and guitarist, Bob Douglas provides a pep talk by telling it like it is:
“With my head held high I’m moving on. I’ve got a lot of soul. I better start to use it.”
‘Endeavour’ is an energised, pop punk mosh-pit maker! Which will undoubtedly get you head banging wherever you choose to listen. Be careful when in the car though… just saying.
