Today, the prolific Omaha-based musician David Nance announces his self-titled debut record as David Nance & Mowed Sound, his latest group and recording project, out February 9th on Third Man Records. He also presents its lead single/video, “Mock The Hours,” a blistering song that sets the pace for how ferocious a band the Nance group can be. “‘Mock The Hours’ is a rock song containing classic pop structure, a big drum and piano drone rhythm, passionate love-and-carnage lyrical nonsense and the biggest chorus on the album,” explains Nance. The track raises heart rates at the start before the deeper, darker grooves which fortify the album begin to take root.

Led by Nance on vocals and guitar alongside Kevin Donahue on drums, James Schroeder on guitar, Derrick Higgins and Sam Lipsett on bass, alongside guest appearances from Megan Siebe, Skye Junginger, and Pearl LoveJoy Boyd, Nance brings together a crew of veteran Omaha musicians for a record that showcases Nance’s  voracious appetite for anything that rocks, anything that soothes, and all the glorious static and disturbed transmissions in between. “The whole album is a big magic trick,” Nance says, “most of these songs were written as country songs and then were perverted into different forms…but it sure as shit isn’t a country record.”

Nance grew up in Grand Island, Nebraska, played in the marching band and discovered punk and garage rock before moving to Omaha and joining the mid-2000 garage punk scene happening there with the band the Forbidden Tigers. Several years spent in Los Angeles with his wife Anna led to a period of songwriting and home recording before they decided to move back to Omaha where he began finding his musical identity and started recording his songs with like-minded friends. What developed was a heavy burned-out rock vibe that still somehow fits in the punk universe. Nance also played with Omaha legend Simon Joyner and has continued to record and self-release tapes and cdrs throughout the past decade.
