nerd salad“Press Start”‘s debut album continues to build on the band’s eclectic yet accessible sound they established on their 2017 EP “Your Father and I Aren’t Angry, We’re Just Disappointed.”
Guitarists/singers Sean Lippin and Nick Cerbone grew up together in Westchester County, New York, sharing a mutual love for music. The two friends performed together in school musicals, took guitar lessons at the same music school in high school, and attended SUNY College in Oneonta together. They met frequently during semesters and school vacations to experiment with different styles and sounds.
After graduating, Sean and Nick started writing songs together and found a rhythm section to play around Westchester, Rockland and NYC. Over time, they found a common vision. The massive effort of creating and supporting a group has resulted in many challenges along the way. They struggled just to find the right musicians to play with and many left for other calls.
Sean and Nick eventually recruited the mighty rhythm section of Frankie Cicciarello (Gallons of Pork) on bass and John Marc Degaard (The Surrealist) on drums to solidify the band’s lineup. The band’s chemistry and versatility are on display on “Press Start” as they effortlessly switch between different genres, including odd math rock at broken tempos, dynamic alternative rock and instrumental jams with long solos reminiscent of a late night set at your favorite festival.
The band worked with producer and recording/mixing technician Nate Jesensky at Greenpoint Recording Collective Studio in Brooklyn, NY to bring their seven-track LP to life.
Nerd Salad can’t wait to celebrate their album release on 6/3 at the Peekskill Brewery with more summer and fall shows to be announced soon!
