With the attention of international music media outlets currently focused on some brilliant guitar rock bands from Ireland, it bears reminding that there are more that 3 or 4 bands worth checking out. Add to that list Nerves. Hailing from the west of Ireland, Nerves first made people sit up and take notice with their previous single, Faces. 

GoldenPlec are hyped to premiere their new single, Slow Drive, which sees them exercise an altogether more abrasive side to their music. It's a departure from Faces and marks them out as a band clearly expanding their sound. Slow Drive has a bruising distorted baseline, Girl Band-esque guitars (not a surprise considering Dan Fox of Girl Band mixed this single) and pummelling drums.

It packs a wallop and shows that Nerves need not have any anxiety about their prospects.
