WE ARE NONTA
We are a London-based atmospheric indie band, formed in 2014.
Drifting between dreamy and poignant, our songs play on subtle contrasts of emotion to convey a melancholic but uncompromising feel, both fragile and powerful.
Our sound embraces an eclectic mix of influences, from post rock to indie folk to dark pop - think Daughter meets Sigur Rós.
Vocals / Nonta Libbrecht-Carey
Guitar / George Taylor
Drums / Matt Korda
Bass / Joe Young
NONTA released their debut EP 'Pulse' on Thursday 15th October 2015.
It was recorded, produced & mixed with their dear friend Francesco Angelini. Mastered at AIRStudios by John Webber.

"If you only listen to one song today, make it “Pulse” by NONTA ... to hear something that sounds like Explosions In The Sky, or Mono, or This Will Destroy You have so much vocals, but Nonta’s placid voice makes it easy to get past that."
