The Nectars weave inspiration from bands like Weezer, The Pixies, Arcade Fire, The Killers, Mac DeMarco, Pavement and Tame Impala into their own brand of Indie Punk—or as they call it “alternative jizz-jazz/cat-trap fusion.”
The band was founded in 2016 by long time friends and Basic Vacation co-collaborators Mikey “Mad Dog” Montalbano (drums) and Jon Paul (bass, keys, backing vocals). They enlisted friend and local guitarist, Mike Baron, plus vocalist and childhood band member with Mad Dog, Jessica Kenny. Still under a year since inception, the band has recorded over 10 tracks, shot three videos and even turned down an early record offer.
They released their debut single ‘Heaven’ at the end of 2017 and was followed by the second 2minute track ‘I Want It’. Both tracks will feature on their debut album ‘Sci-Fi Television’ out May 25th.
