THE NEST was established in 2011. Comprising of Christoph Closer ("Bohren & der Club of Gore"), Tycho Schottelius ("Desmond Denker"), Thomas Mahmoud and Gerald Mandl (both "Tannhauser Sterben & das Tod"), they have created their own blend of electro-acoustic, jazz and noise.
Their debut album "Music for Drivers" (Denovali) has been described as: "Highly minimal and with due attention to space and atmosphere, 'Music For Drivers' is poised with a sharp tension between contrasting organic and mechanical sound sources; field recordings lend an unpredictability and sense of atmospheric breadth while their patiently attuned playing paints the space between with ethereal, otherworldly strokes of synthesizer, saxophone and electronics, constantly morphing between moods which are never quite just dark and light, maybe best described in terms of psychedelic, hallucinatory light shows." (Boomkat)
With the idea to transform this material even further, the band has self-released a remix-cassette album ("Music from Co-Drivers"), featuring a carefully selected bunch of experienced collaborators, musically ranging from Breakcore, Dubstep, to New Wave and Experimental Music.
Whilst their debut album was driven by the clarification of areas and fields the new album SAYWEENJOY focusses on the more melodic and rhythmical structures of The Nest's very own musical language.
