The Nudge has a genre crossing, bluesy, but psychedelic and hypnotic sound. What establishes them as unique is their ability to use the whole sonic spectrum, both layered and texturally, as a crucial part of their song writing. Often tribal in rhythm, the element of a party and dance vibe is never far from the heart of their songs.
Formed initially in 2010 by Ryan Prebble wishing to expand what was originally a solo project, they’ve been morphing their sound ever since. The Nudge have toured extensively throughout NZ, and have been through Australia and Europe, as well as performing numerous support shows with Midnight Oil, Fly My Pretties, The Black Seeds, Kora, Little Bushman, and long time Wellington associates Fat Freddy’s Drop.
NZ Musician live review (Whammy Bar) - “The Nudge have perfected a fine balance between psychedelic rock and classic rock to create a niche sound that sounds impressive recorded and even better in person.”
