the no tomoOriginating from Erewash in Nottingham, The No Tomorrows have an eerily uplifting charm about their music that is hard to place into one specific genre. Lead singer Baz Kane's mesmerising vocal has a high and magical style reminiscent of Mercury Rev front man Jonathan Donohue. The vocals complement the distinctive and minimalist sound created by bassist Tony Start and guitarist Peanut.

There is a plenty of subtleties in their sound which just adds to the endearing mystery of their current 14 track CD Hanging in Space. Songs like Live Today, This National Mistrust and Folding Space could be lightly dismissed as indie pop, but that would be ignoring how layered their sound is. They ingratiate ideas from genres such as new wave and full on rock.

What is exciting about this bands potential is how distinctive and hard to pigeonhole they are. That just adds to the intrigue for the listener, as it is hard to pick out their influences. The No Tomorrows are a minimalist musical mystery that definitely is going to be around for longer than tomorrow.
