A huge congratulations to Nervous Kids, who have announced that they have signed to Wiretap Records! The home of Weatherstate, Catholic Guilt and more, they are in exceptionally good company. It’s also a signing that they have earned. Since their inception in 2021, the band have been pulling out all the stops and sharing punk-rock that ensnares the soul. Capturing the energy of the 90s and propelling it through a sunny modern lens, the band bring the spirit of the past crashing into the present wonderfully. From “Threw Me Away” to “Distance“, “Back To The Start” to “Without You“, they already have a discography that many a young band would give everything for. So with the start of this new chapter, there is plenty to be excited about.

To celebrate, we have an exclusive look at the video for their latest song “Anyone But You“. Originally released back in June, it’s a song that came from Nervous Kids’ first official studio session, conducted with producer Alex Estrada. The track itself is down-tuned and grungey in all the right ways with flecks of exuberant Summertime thrills. It’s a love song for the good times and bad times, a reminder of how that special someone can change everything in a split second. Young love is a special entity in this world, and to capture that energy in the form of a song that will be at the center of so many mixtapes moving forwards is so special

The video itself takes things right back to the basics. Four friends, a garage and a camcorder. Just the way that those before them did, it’s a tribute to the simpler times and to what it means to make something with the people you love. Visually it crackles with age, looking thirty years old even in HD. Then there’s the band, giving their all to a song that clearly means the world to them.

The band had this to say about the song:

“The inspiration for this song is my girlfriend, Victoria, and how that relationship gives me hope when life can seem bleak a lot of the time. Going into the studio for the first time ever was a bit nerve-racking, but turned out to be an insightful and super fun experience. Getting to record with Alex was a huge privilege, and we’re so beyond stoked with how everything turned out! It’s an honor to be joining Wiretap amongst their roster of so many great bands.“
