The incredible indie explosion: Nü Sensae
Accompanied by drummer Daniel Pitout and guitarist Brody McKnight, singer-bassist Andrea Lukic regularly risks extreme vocal-cord damage by screaming her lungs out in Nü Sensae, whose Sundowning is a caustic collection of grunge-tinted punk.
Best local release other than yours:
“I love White Lung’s Sorry, but Peace’s The World Is Too Much With Us might take the cake.”
The year’s best gig:
“My favourite show from the last year was Mac DeMarco at Khatsahlano! [on July 22] because he is a beautiful cherub, and his set was like a calm glass of tea rattling on an Airstream trailer countertop in Kitsilano.”
What classic never leaves the turntable?
“Trans by Neil Young. Incredibly underrated.”
Where are we impressing your out-of-town friends?
“I’m taking them to La Charcuterie Delicatessen [19080 96th Avenue] in Surrey and making them pay. They’ll be ordering bobbys from the set menu.”
Like LMFAO, who’s sexy and knows it?
“Peace. Each member is like a very individual slice of heaven. They’re the sexiest band in Vancouver—second only to Penis Turds.”
Uncle Morty left you his fortune. Where are you opening a venue?
“On top of a mountain beyond civilization with an electric fence around it so no one can bother me. Only attendees allowed are the goats on the farm.”
