BILLY NOMATES: “Billy Nomates” limited yellow LP. Released 7th August 2020

LP is pressed on yellow vinyl, housed in a heavyweight spined sleeve with gold foil text print. Includes printed
insert with handwritten lyrics and digital download card.

Billy Nomates, the fierce, funny, outspoken force of nature who hails from Melton Mowbray and now flits between
Bournemouth and Bristol, has arrived to rattle cages. The songs on her debut album all come from a place of
defiance. Rebellion against Brexit. Against soul-sapping, dead-end jobs and zero-hours contracts. Against gender
inequality, sexual harassment and festivals with obligatory female acts hidden in the small print. Billy’s songs lampoon the same bleak reality satirised by her beloved Scarfolk website and explored so abrasively in the fringe theatre she finds solace in.
Musically, there are snatches of Nick Cave’s rumbling sprechgesang; the “off-the-wall-ness of musicians like
Captain Beefheart”; Sleaford Mods’ febrile post-punk; the groovesome lofi art-rock of Sonic Youth and the brassy
Americana of Emmylou Harris. What dominates, though, is a feeling of release. Of letting it all out.
The track ‘Supermarket Sweep’ features guest vocals by Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods.
