Reviewed by Sam Lowry

NØ MAN debuts the music video for “Glitter and Spit,” a raw and unapologetic anthem against distortion, ahead of the release of their highly anticipated album, showcasing their fierce sound and commitment to resistance.

NØ MAN, the hardcore band hailing from Washington DC, has just dropped the music video for “Glitter and Spit,” the title track from their upcoming album set to release on March 29th via Iodine Recordings. The band, known for their unapologetically fierce sound, is gearing up to make a significant impact with this new release.

“Glitter and Spit” is a declaration against the distortion of reality to fit others' fantasies. In their words, it's about staying true to oneself amidst external pressures. The video, directed by Joseph Pattisall, captures the essence of NØ MAN's electrifying live performances, reflecting their raw energy and authenticity.

The album, titled "Glitter and Spit," promises a collection of intense tracks that delve into themes of resistance and personal experience. Lead vocalist Maha Shami, drawing from her Palestinian heritage and her own encounters with adversity, delivers some of her most powerful vocals to date.

In a statement, Shami shares, “This record is a love letter to resistance... As a Palestinian and a woman, my existence alone is enough to offend.” Through their music, NØ MAN aims to confront colonial logic and stand against oppression.

With their roots tracing back to the early 2000s punk scene, NØ MAN consists of seasoned musicians who have been shaping the hardcore landscape for decades. Their dedication to blending the personal with the political is evident throughout "Glitter and Spit."

The album opener, "Eat My Twin," sets the tone with its relentless energy, paving the way for a gripping journey across ten blistering tracks. Each song is fueled by Shami's experiences, from confronting denial of Palestine's existence to enduring humiliation at military checkpoints.

NØ MAN's commitment to their message extends beyond the music, with upcoming benefit shows planned to support organizations aiding the Palestinian people. Their resilience and determination shine through in every aspect of their artistry.

"Glitter and Spit" was meticulously crafted by the band and recorded at Viva Studio, with mastering by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. As they gear up for the album release, NØ MAN remains a force to be reckoned with in the hardcore scene, delivering a potent blend of passion and purpose.
