Aesthetically, the 14 songs on Bored Nothing’s stunning debut self-titled album take a leaf from the DIY rock of the ‘80s and early ‘90s. Anyone who’s recently fallen for the charms of bands such as Real Estate and DIIV, as well as artists such as Slowdive and Pavement, will find much to love here. Sonically, there’s mixing and matching of sounds from shoegaze and sludge-metal to loner folk. On its first release proper, Bored Nothing flirts with endlessly bending guitar leads and lyrics concerned by youth and heartbreak, but never with too much concern.
