"Werewolf Pop" I think that's a pretty good term actually! -Steve Lamacq BBC6 music
Strength N.I.A are an unorthodox pop band from Derry,
Northern Ireland. Led by singer Rory Moore they use bass guitar, organ and
beats to create songs.
I wanted to use pieces of dead machinery: an old drum machine,a broken bass guitar, a stuttering organ. I wanted to use things that people had disregarded or forgotten about, I needed to find the light that was still flickering within these machines. My whole purpose was to create something that would sound good in a crap Hi-fi.
I needed to get clear of massive recording consoles and endless digital options.I wanted to get myself into a space were there was literally nothing left. Strength N.I.A was the aftermath of a nuclear disaster,and all I could find amidst the smouldering rubble was a cassette machine and some other forms of primitive and basic machinery - I imagined myself making the first pop songs in the world again - songs that would connect with people after the disaster - everything in the world had been destroyed so I needed to create something out of the ruin-something tangible that could be felt and played in a makeshift hi-fi or car stereo. This is were I would begin...
Strength N.I.A have featured on BBC6 music, Vice/NOISEY, Hot Press, The Thin Air, State and the Irish Mirror. They have received air
time on BBC Radio 4 (Front Row), BBC Radio Foyle, BBC
Radio Ulster, RTE 2FM, and Absolute Radio with Frank
