Nuxx Vomica - FTEV
“I don’t exist to feed your needs.”
Nuxx Vomica invokes movement. Since her first EP, A Different Place from 2020, the Brooklyn-based Madeline Seely has been causing chaos on stages along the East Coast with her raucous performances. “I find myself connected to spaces and environments a lot,” says Seely. “And when I think of the music I make and enjoy, I think a lot about the headspaces that rooms can put me in. It’s something I notice a lot in retrospect.” These spaces, which undoubtedly must be pitch black and fog-filled, helped Seely to write her newest EP, FTEV. It was during her live performances that these songs took shape: “I feel like because I wrote these songs in front of other people live, I didn’t always have the chance to self-censor. Because of that, I just made something that was maybe a little more honest than I otherwise would have let myself be.”
FTEV opens with a severity that endures from beginning to end. “I’m not the girl of your dreams,” Seely warns—and equally seduces—the listener on “Do It Twice.” Her voice is hypnotizing enough to lure you to come closer, just close enough for her to spit in your face. Each line is accented by the track’s EBM formula, a concoction of sounds that puncture through like sharp-edged dagger. “Easy Go” is constructed of precise, cutting basslines and filthy house music elements; the result is a tornado of energy that refuses to dissipate.
Foaming at the mouth with hysterics, Seely’s vocals echo in ravenous intensity on “FTEV”—a track which is punk in its brevity but rave at its core. “Outside Days,” in a pure dance frenzy, feels like a long-lost cousin of Schwefelgelb’s EBM output. The track’s tension builds until it explodes, leaving everything behind in its brutal wake. To close out the EP, “Perpetual Night,” with a hard techno kick, duels with its harsh, acidic bassline. Meant to be blasted within the walls of a grimy, dimly-lit club, FTEV refuses to be confined to one genre. It is seductive, but oh-so tough—a delinquent combination that is irrefutably divine.
