New artist announcement: Heavenly sign Memphis group Nots


After catching these Memphis girls at SXSW earlier this year, we’re hugely excited to add Nots to our current roster and bring their debut LP ‘We Are Nots’ to Europe this winter.

Launching the announcement with the bands debut single ‘Reactor,’ Noisey premiered the track with a video produced by the bands front women Natalie Hoffman.

“Memphis based band NOTS come from a good lineage. Their debut album — set for a UK release on Heavenly Records — is licensed from legendary label Goner, who were home to Jay Reatard, Ex Cult, and The Oblivians, among others. So it’s not surprising then that the record also clocks in somewhere just shy of the the 27 minute mark.

Urgent, fast, and loud — think of all the adjectives used to describe racous lo-fi punk music. Think Bikini Kill. Think the Cramps. The Fall. NOTS take elements from all of these things and repackage them in their own visceral, sometimes psychedelic sheen.”


Reactor will be released as a limited 7″ on November 6th, pre-order the 7″ here.

Following the single, the bands debut LP ‘We Are Nots’ has been given a new yellow sleeve (previously pink) for the Heavenly edition as well including the ‘Virgin Mary / Shelf Life’ 7″. Due for release on November 20th, visit here for full track-listing and pre-order the LP here.
