ROCK AT NIGHT PREMIERE: Nox Boys’ single “My Umbrella”
Pittsburgh and its people are near and dear to the hearts of many Rock At Night staffers. Its industrial roots keep people honest and its sense of local culture strong, One of the things we especially like are the Nox Boys, a charismatic four piece from suburban Blawnox that’s proud of both its origins and being a rock n roll band.
Rock At Night has been witness to how these lads have won over the hearts and ears of unsuspecting fans, like their rousing set in Tampa in December ‘19. And now frontman Zack Keim and the band are back with a winning new single, and we are thrilled to present the world premiere!
“My Umbrella” is a lo-fi, high-heart affair that matches an early 60s garage sound with unabashed street-corner romanticism. It continues in the tradition of Pittsburgh garage rock scions the Cynics and even the innocent melodies of a favorite garage rock classicist of ours, Jonathan Richman. While it times in at a compact two minutes, we think it will remain a staple in your playlist far longer!
