Direct from the thinnest part of the veil (Palmdale, CA), Nation was established in 2019 as the united front of vocalist Fresh Jame and producer Funball. The enigmatic duo explore the fringes of electronic pop, distilling the frayed edges of acid house, eurodance and 2010s internet rap into vivid, dizzying compositions.
Nation both superimpose and transcend genres as they unite vibrant rave aesthetics with punk spirit.
The self-titled debut LP quickly slips into freefall as Fresh Jame’s lyrics and vocalizations plunge into acidic soft synths and scattered drums. The result is an exhilarating descent toward the restless world of Nation.
