EDITORS’ NOTES

On their debut album, Holy Collusion, garage rockers Runaway Nuns waste zero time. Thunderous lightning crackles while a reverberating guitar chord drones on in the opening seconds of "Extra Celestial", signalling their heavy psych influence—no surprise to those who have followed the quintet’s emergence from the Cape Town indie scene and popular local parties like Psych Night. Sean Baron's gravelly, devil-may-care vocal is expertly suited to the band’s righteous, combative lyrics and heavily fuzzed-out guitars. And while song tempos may vary, the Nuns have one very simple mission: to make you shake it hard.
