'One of the most promising unsigned bands in the UK' (Claire Sturgess XFM)
'F**king Brilliant' (Adam Walton BBC Radio Wales)
"They create a edgy guitar led indie sound that balances nicely between the frantic rhythms of Radiohead, and the all out rock moments of Muse."
Merthyr born Michael Hall returns to Wales, with his stunnning London based outfit Nebraska. Nebraska create space rock with a real emotional punch, their debut album "The Path to the Silent Country" (released last year on Home Town Jam recordings), has received favourable comparisons with Trail of Dead, The Smashing Pumpkings, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Marion and the Smiths.
"Imagine if Morrissey decided to join the Manic Street Preachers? Well imagine no more! Nebraska are here with their math-rocking sound." New Noise
"The energy and abrasiveness of the Smashing Pumpkins and a Doves-esque wall of sound.A stunning debut." Artrocker
