“‘Dance On The Blacktop’ is an exercise in this philosophy: droning guitars, subdued yet emotive vocals and crashing percussion” FORBES
“glorious, droning, guitar rock band that is sort of like MBV but grittier and darker” NPR
“their most ambitious, sprawling effort to date” STEREOGUM (Cover Story Here)
“Nothing’s dismal backstory both colors in their sound and accounts for its sadness, its heaviness, its palliative effect…tried-and-true arrangements-simmering and erupting, despondent and ecstatic” PITCHFORK
“Nothing has mastered the shoegaze toolbox…bracingly loud… thick, sludgy guitar roar and dreamy verses” PASTE
“a pitch-black four minutes of laconic nihilism, sung like a haunted lullaby” NOISEY
“brings a heaping of Smashing Pumpkins-esque alt-rock, melding hard guitars with moody distortion” REVOLVER (Cover Story Here)
“mournful, atmospheric vocals” CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“an impressive demonstration of dream-pop art brut” FLOOD
NEW NOISE MAGAZINE (Cover Story Here)
“intermixes the gritty and the gorgeous with all the economy of an Anton Corbijn photo” AV CLUB

Recorded at the historical Dreamland Studios in Woodstock, NY, Dance on the Blacktop is the next chapter of NOTHING’s story and like its predecessors, pulls from all corners of life in its contents. Stories of self-loathing, self-destruction, and a general disdain for humanity and its, “insignificant” role in Palermo’s vision of the universe are met with his poised amusement and tranquil hysteria being one himself. All of this told through the eyes of a recently diagnosed Palermo suggesting he is dealing with the early stages of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), a neurodegenerative disease found in people with serious head injuries. And as they packed themselves in a coffin-sized NYC apartment for 23 days to demo songs it became abundantly clear that the ripple effect left upon his psyche from dealing with these newfound symptoms would leave its mark on the material.
