Nachthexen - Ring Ring

"please leave your message after the tone......"  

  Nachthexen are a female fronted synth punk band from Sheffield featuring Emma Thacker (vocals), Donna (synth), Fiona (bass) and Olga Rienda (drums). They take their name from the German nickname for the women military aviators of the 558th Night Bomber Regiment (later known as the 46th "Taman" Guards Night Bomber Aviation Regiment) of the Soviet Air Forces. The English translation is Night Witches.

  Last year saw them release the name your price ep titled The Other. They followed it up last April with a s/t 7" ep on Kids Of The Lughole Records. (Just a quick note, Kids Of The Lughole have put out some of 2016's coolest music, this blog has already featured Sievehead, Clean Shirts and Detergents but there's others that are definitely worth checking out : ).

  You can find Nachthexen's music here :

  Back when I was at school, the likes of Cabaret Voltaire and The Human League were pioneering synth punk and like Nachthexen, both were from Sheffield. Upholding that city's fine tradition of this kind of music, from the s/t ep, this is Ring Ring.....
