Always In Bloom
Hide & Seek
Nutrients is a Toronto band that plays short, jangly songs. The group is often compared to Pavement for their slacker delivery, Connan Mockasin for their oddball pop leanings, and, every now and then, Women, for their occasional dissonant digressions.
After releasing a series of homemade tapes, the band entered the studio to record a collection of songs with Louie Short. Mixed by Lounge FM’s Adam Pauls, the self-titled, debut Nutrients album was released by Birmingham, Alabama independent label Earth Libraries in late 2019. "Nutrients" sees the band’s softly-sung, breezy bedroom pop evolve into something more dynamic compositionally. The 9-song, 28-minute collection is mostly carefree and casual, yet occasionally tightly-wound and unpredictable. Highlights include the shapeshifting lounge pop of Such Slime, the duelling guitars of Hide & Seek, the gentle saxophone turns of Suede, and the penultimate piano ballad Hyperbole.
The band is currently preparing for a 2021 release of their second full length album.
