Nürnberg Premiere New Single "Znajomstva"

Minsk, Belarus post punk/indie/new wave duo Nürnberg have premiered their new single “Znajomstva” (Acquaintance).

The track is taken from their new maxi-single “Znajomstva“, out today, November 1st. Get it here.

Nürnberg formed in 2016, their work is influenced by post-soviet cities depression, existentialism, social problems in the modern industrial world, pressure and fatigue but also by some essential feelings that make us more human – the ability to love and feel compassion.

Their music is somber, moody, atmospheric and energetic. Influenced by 80’s British post-punk/new-wave/coldwave sound, crawling with melancholy, gloom and desolation awash with shimmering reverb and bittersweet melodies.

Kick and clap drum beats and huge bouncing melodic basslines set the impending sense of despair, annihilation and helplessness, while searing wistful guitar leads ebb and flow, chasing and dancing with forlorn emotional vocals in a dark embrace of inexorable death.

Take a listen below.

Nürnberg “Znajomstva” Lyrics (English):

You’re easy to love but easier to hate
Your words mean nothing to me anymore.
Today I am the happiest in the world
I will never see you again.

If i knew
I wouldn’t get to know you.
If i knew
I wouldn’t go.
If i knew
Nerves would stay with me.
If i knew
I would have left earlier.

Your pathological fears
Along with a fake smile.
Our acquaintance with you
I consider it the biggest mistake in my life.
