HOT NERDS + BrooklynVegan

"Spastic rock that owes as much to dissonant Dischord-style post-hardcore as it does to Baltimore's experimental pop scene of the late '00s."
–BrooklynVegan

"Their spastic, demented, synth-heavy sound encapsulates all the insanity that is 2015."
–VICE

"Part of a proud San Diego tradition of completely wild and utterly unabashed spazzitude... Strategically Placed Bananas is a ten-song collection of synth, skronk, and spite."
–Noisey

"100 Bands You Need To Know in 2014"
–Alternative Press

The newest horse in the Three One G Records stable, Hot Nerds is a caustic bunch of synth-blasters with a debut LP, Strategically Placed Bananas, set to hit the world over the head on March 10th. The San Diego trio has offered up a new song off the album, "Stuffed Party Animals," for your displeasure, now streaming at Brooklyn Vegan.

Enjoy "Stuffed Party Animals," here.

Like labelmates The Locust and Arab on Radar before them, Hot Nerds revels in the brutal, obnoxious, and saccharine. VICE has tagged the band with words like "spastic" and "demented" while Brooklyn Vegan's Andrew Sacher pegs it as "spastic rock that owes as much to dissonant Dischord-style post-hardcore as it does to Baltimore's experimental pop scene of the late '00s."

Frontman Nathan Joyner is a member of All Leather and an ex-member of Some Girls, both with Three One G Records founder (and member of The Locust, Retox, Head Wound City, et al.) Justin Pearson.

Hot Nerds' Strategically Placed Bananas record release show goes down March 6th at Soda Bar in San Diego, with special guest Qui.
