Nothing are one of the loudest bands playing music today, but on "Endlessly" (from their upcoming Guilty of Everything LP), the shoegaze crew control their din. Drawing inspiration from genre titans My Bloody Valentine as well as modern genre-crossers Deafheaven, the Philly group opens the track with gentle, quiet tinkering. But soon roaring, wall-of-sound guitars arrive with enough force to knock you back a few steps. The sound is vast, but as the song trudges forward it maintains a controlled examination of sonic texture and contrast. Vocalist Domenic Palermo sings with an airy whisper, but because the song is a massive, slow march, he sounds as loud as a cannon.

"'Endlessly' is a song about a seasick family who squeezed out a dizzy baby," Palermo tells Rolling Stone.

Guilty of Everything is out March 4th via Relapse, and if you want to see how loud Nothing can be, check them out on tour, which starts March 2nd. Bring earplugs.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
