We wish the world enjoyed more indie bands like Nihilist Cheerleader! Flynne, Charley, Leora & Dylan brew vivid indie pop, with a punkish hint. Their 3-minute ‘Who’s Gonna Hear You‘ is the ideal example of this blending, an appetizer for their upcoming ‘Riot, Right?‘  out on March 30th via Perfect Attendance Records.
Prepare yourselves for some serious indie awesomeness!

“Who’s gonna Hear You” is without a doubt our danciest track on the album– we even have a music video that demonstrates our commitment to dance! Our favorite shows to go to in Athens have audiences that move around and that’s the feel we tried to create within this song. Lyric-wise the track reflects on our experiences as musicians/students/food service-industry workers in Athens– how sometimes it can feel like you’re going nowhere and doing nothing when the next day you realize how incredible your friends and community and places you go are.

Nihilist Cheerleader is making a name for themselves in the thriving Athens/ Atlanta music scene with their raw, Riot Grrrl- inspired punk sound. The band formed in 2015 in Athens, Ga, and found early success in a saturated scene with their new take on an established concept of “punk”. The band brings a charged energy to their live and recorded performances that is engaging and refreshing. Nihilist Cheerleader’s sound appropriately reflects the band’s name in it’s duality- both turbulent and controlled, angsty and uplifting, thoughtful and effortless.

What sets them apart from other musicians in their midsts is their story-like songwriting. Like the artists that have inspired them, the band’s music is largely rooted in political and social commentary.  Their lyrics command the listener to take a closer look at social injustices related to gender and power structures, and ones internal dialogue. Rather than aimlessly identify problems they see, the band’s intention is to start a constructive conversation about how we can combat and resolve such issues. Their songs inspire rebellion, self exploration, change, and especially dance.

Following the release of one EP, three singles, and two southeastern tours, the band is releasing  their first full-length album with Perfect Attendance Records spring of 2018, and will be touring the east coast this summer. In the past two years the band has received multiple music awards from a local publication, voted by the public as best startup band, best punk/hard rock band, and best live performance. The members are excited to release their new music, as well as some accompanying music videos, as their project continues to grow and evolve.
