Los Angeles-based creative collective NVDES has released the new EP La NVDITÉ Vol. 1.
Summery and sensual with a punk edge, the five-track collection follows the release of frontman Josh Ocean's 2016 debut EP Life With Lobsters.
Along with the release of La NVDITÉ Vol. 1, NVDES also shared the video for the song "Dancer From New York." About the track, Ocean commented: "Dancer From New York was inspired by a crazy night my collaborator Sean Van Vleet had after eating at White Castle in WIlliamsburg, Brooklyn. I moved to NYC in 2005 to pursue music. The electricity of the local indie-rock scene during that time was extremely formative for me. A lot of my music is influenced by what I was listening to and experiencing at that time. This song is my homage to that time and those influences." Watch the video here.
