Los Angeles-based creative collective NVDES announce the La NVDITÉ, Vol. 1 EP slated for an August 11th release on Maison Nvdité/Kobalt Music Recordings. An intriguing introduction to the laptop-punk of de-facto frontman Josh Ocean, he emerges with a five-track collection brimming with his signature frenetic guitars and punk energy, honing his prowess for crafting compulsive summery jams.


Today, NVDES shares new singles Do You Think About Meand “Do Ya” (via Milk) highlighted by a tropical groove and released tomorrow on all digital retailers. About the track/s, Ocean comments, “This song is about the modern saga of exploring love on the internet. We wrote it shortly after I started a long distance relationship with someone in Paris via Facebook messenger. It’s about the constant wondering “is this real?” and the melancholy that comes along with that.”


Ocean continues, “Inspired by this theme of love on the internet, I teamed up with Jenna Josepher and Giulia Marsico to direct the lyric video. Their personal styles could be considered opposites, with Jenna’s affinity for inanity and patterns, and Giulia’s exploration in sexuality and the human figure, yet their interests in analogy and absurdity are what bring them together. For this video they utilized the stark juxtaposition of two similar yet highly contrasting images as an interpretation of what love on the internet can feel like; when you’re receiving one signal but interpreting another, subsequently causing your reality to distort.”


Following the release of his glitchy 2016 debut EP Life With Lobsters, NVDES garnered over 10 million streams across platforms, charted on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, and received acclaim from the likes of FADER, NYLON, and many more. The four-track collection spins through an array of kaleidoscopic sounds that are both levitating and melodic, yet wholly original.


In anticipation of release, NVDES has also announced a series of live dates in Chicago and New York. Stay tuned for more dates coming soon.
