The Night Terrors - 2010 - Nasty

Indie Rock
<a href="">?</a>
This is a band I've been sitting on for quite a while now. They should be right up your alley if you like some of the more famous Indie Rock bands, like Mando Diao and the likes. Strong, frantic guitar riffs and a very charismatic voice ensure that their songs are very easily stuck in your head if you heard them once. I have no idea how they managed to stay this well hidden with fantastic songs like "Video Nasty" and especially "Fear the Worst". Actually, the only explanation I can think of is the unfortunate choice for the bandname as there is another rather popular band that will pop up if you google "Night Terrors". So be aware of that if you are searching for their website (or let me help you: Click). It seems like their first 2 song EP was moderately well known, but they somehow didnt manage to advertise their second EP as much, which is a real shame. Good music of this genre seems to get rarer by the day with the most well known Indie Rock Bands like Mando Diao, Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and more going creatively the way of the dodo or changing to other subgenres - most noticeably Electronica currently. Despite the last activity on their website being quite a few months ago, I hope The Night Terrors know that their music is still wanted and, even if it takes a while, get back together at some point to make new songs that I can get my hands on.
