British electro-pop trio Nedry announces US debut of album championed by BBC, Q Magazine, Uncut, XFM

"Gently skittering electronics and slow-building, spacious ambience - Nedry's gorgeous, minimal soundscapes are tailor made for the wee hours." -- Q Magazine

"A futuristic sonic collage of dreamy glitch-folk, shimmering electronica and weapons-grade Dubstep percussion... Feels like a futuristic step forward from Radiohead's In Rainbows or Portishead's Third. 4 stars." -- Uncut

"Sent shivers down my spine….like Thom Yorke’s Eraser with a bit of a Dubstep vibe and some Post-Rock influences… Nedry's post-dubstep, shoegazy brilliance will make them stand out from the crowd in 2010" -- Huw Stephens - BBC Radio One Introducing

London, UK trio Nedry -- whose dazzling fusion of electronica, instrumental rock, dub-step rhythms and hauntingly beautiful vocals has generated a wellspring of excitement in the UK media -- announces the U.S. release of its debut album Condors. The disc arrives stateside via Monotreme Records (65daysofstatic, Jeniferever, Barzin) on April 20th, 2010.

Check out the MP3 for "A42" from the album HERE. Or, watch videos for "A42" (VIDEO) and "Apples & Pears" (VIDEO).

Nedry is Matt Parker, Chris Amblin and Ayu Okakita. Their beautiful sound and arresting beats are from and for the "post-" generation. Their songs are dark and ambient but broken-up and lifted by moments of glitch and fuzzy, melodic guitars eliciting comparisons to other iconoclast artists like Bjork, Blonde Redhead and Tuung. Both live and on record they use innovative production techniques to create a truly original sound.

Nedry started performing, producing and recording in summer 2008. In a little over a year they've made waves on the UK electronic music scene, sharing stages with the likes of Pivot (Warp), Maps (MUTE), The Gaslamp Killer (Brainfeeder) and Daedelus (Ninja Tune). Nedry have steadily gathered critical acclaim since the self-released SZ EP, and support from the likes of Q Magazine and The Times as well as airplay on a host of radio stations including XFM, Resonance FM, BBC 6Music and BBC Radio 1 has assured them as one of the most exciting bands to emerge in 2009. BBC Radio 1 DJ and new music guru Huw Stephens in particular has championed the Nedry sound, inviting them to the famous Maida Vale studios to record a live session for his show.

Nedry tours the UK this spring with 65daysofstatic as well as headlining dates in the UK & Europe. See complete dates below.
