New Nurses MP3, Pre-Order w/Instant Download

Nurses share a new track today from their highly anticipated album, Dracula. The song, “Trying to Reach You” premiered this morning on Pitchfork’s Forkcast. Gentle piano over a vibey bass line complements shuffling and varied percussion that opens into a forest of instruments and layered vocals in a demonstration of what Pitchfork calls Nurses’ “avant-pop” sound. You can listen to the track here.

Dracula is also available for the first time TODAY for pre-order from SC Distribution. Each pre-order comes with an instant download of the full album. Vinyl and CD bundles are available and the instant download will include Dark Jordan Mixtape, a digital-only 9 track EP from the band, comprised of out-takes, home recordings and sound experiments.

The band will also do three in-store performances in their hometown of Portland on US release day. On Tuesday, September 20th Nurses will start at Jackpot Records at 4:30pm, then head to Everyday Music at 5:30pm and finish at Music Millennium at 7pm. The official album release show will follow on September 22nd at Holocene. Full tour dates are listed below.
