MNNQNS from Rouen, France, were brought together by their tastes in post-punk and pubs. Citing influences like The Fall, Television and Sonic Youth, they are a compelling force of tightly woven guitars, enveloping feedback and singer Adrian D’Epinay’s deadpan, almost sermonic vocals. The band like to take their ideas to the extreme – when they’re pop, they’re really pop. When they’re punk, they’re really punk. These shifts happen within the space of a mood swing, the confines of a song. MNNQNS waste no time in forming a connection with the listener, both sonically and emotionally.
