I'm Bent - The Reviews


Diario de Shows @diariodeshows "NOW PLAYING: 9 o'clock Nasty released at the end of July her new single “I'm Bent” in an extremely powerful and impactful way with a very reflective message about society and the parameters it imposes on what and who we should be and they question: “Can someone different love and be loved?”"

The Other Side @theothersidereviews "“A wonderful anthem for the different, this track takes everything we have come to love about the band, mashes it together and injects it into your veins… There is a passion that has been woven into every note of the track as the music moves from a shiver of live energy to a smooth slide. Throughout the melody, the band brings a touch of old-school punk rock to something that is utterly unique and the essence of the band…. With a punk rock attack, 9 o’clock Nasty set their sights on the ideas society pushes on us, while creating an inclusive space for everything that is different in ‘I’m Bent’. The music captures everything that we love about the band and turns it all the way up to eleven. Through the music, they edge into anthemic territory while helping us embrace everything that makes us unique.”

Senocular @senocularmedia "9 o’clock Nasty are a band that fuse multiple styles of rock, punk, indie, and garage rock into their own blend of nastiness. Their latest single, “I’m Bent,” build upon the nasty and takes it to ultimate levels. Rugged riffs with an anthemic chorus make “I’m Bent” a great end of summer celebration song."

The Biggest Channel @brbbsamuel "...“I’m Bent” track makes my body remembers the sensation of the beloved annual county fair, that one ride I thought I could handle in the pain and strain of maturing. It seemed like an inescapable rite of passage...  I just can’t stand on the outside of this song, assessing it from a distance. It’s an immersive experience. Let’s all dive into this euphoric sound!"

Pigeon Opinion @musicreviews_bypigeon ""I'm Bent" opens boldly with flashy heavy riffs and immediately throws the hook in your face! Here they bring to the table the ironic songwriting and charisma of using and abusing distinctive group vocals popularized by bittersweet indie legends Pavement in the 90s! In the second half, fast key-based refinements stand out that perfect this promising underground group that stays more than true to its garage and rebellious roots!"

Headbangers News @headbangersnews_br The single brings the classic form used by the band, very eclectic with unusual sounds and references to alternative rock from the 90's with good references to grunge, garage rock, pop and indie. The song has an oldschool sound and powerful riffs, where the vocals come together in full force. The song arrives with a music video that looks like it was pulled from MTV's top 10 in the 90s, exuding energy and true rock'n'roll attitude in fighting prejudice and defending minorities. 9 o'clock Nasty mesmerizes the listener and captivates him with all the charisma and inimitable sense of humor of this band.

Music City Pulse @musiccitypulse "9 o'clock represents the new emerging sound of the music scene that is daring, refreshing, and fearless to be who they are. There’s no expectation or stress in their sound or any attempt to try to be any other artists than theirselves. They do their own thing and they make their name for it.. I'm Bent is a song where everything seems to be in the right place.”

Rising Artists   @risingartists.musicblog “Serious question…have you been living under a rock? If you’re not aware of 9 o’clock Nasty’s 6th release this year than clearly you have been sharing living space with Patrick Star. “I’m Bent” is the latest release from the weirdest trio to come out of Leicester, UK and keeping true to who they are, it’s gritty and has hints of classic rock and some psychedelia.. It’s clear that these gents whistle to the beat of their own tune, they seem to not care what anyone thinks and them or their music. This has shown a huge positive response to listeners like you, listeners who aren’t like the “normal” and are deemed as different. If that’s the case, “I’m Bent” is the anthem you will need.”

FV Music Blog @fvmusicblog "The brilliant Leicester-based band 9 O’CLOCK NASTY are back with their engaging and addictive song ‘I’m Bent’. It is a single with hard-hitting lyrics, and memorable melodies which are executed in 9 O’CLOCK NASTY’s formidable style."

OS Garotos De Liverpool @gdltudosobremusica “Delivering all their punk/garage/classic rock identity, with a totally energetic atmosphere, heavy guitars, beautiful riffs, drums even keyboards that give a more classic touch to the work, they present high voltage music that does not allow us to stay still for even a second, whether moving our bodies or shaking our heads involuntarily while writing this news post.”

Send Me Your Ears @SendMeYourEars “9 o’clock Nasty are following their own path and picking up some dedicated fans along the way. I’m Bent may well be our favourite so far from 9 o’clock Nasty. They describe the song as “an anthem for the different”. 9 o’clock Nasty are passionate about kindness, respect and inclusion and I’m Bent is a fun and inclusive song whose message needs to be heard around the world. I’m Bent is an exhausting blast of energy, condensed into 2 minutes and 46 seconds of in your face attitude.”

Roadie Music @roadiemusicmag “AMAZING how they release so much material and the quality is always brutal! One of our editors (Fabiano Menon) proclaimed the following sentence: “if Frank Zappa were alive today, 9 o’clock Nasty would be his partner band”. And we signed below, simply brilliant madness! …. We can't forget to mention the angry, lugubrious, vibrant and striking vocals, a great hallmark of this powerful institution that is 9 o'clock Nasty! The abrupt encore, loaded with feedback, says a lot about the creative potential of this overwhelming trio.”

Fame Magazine @famemagazine "“In a world where it seems to be drilled into us constantly that there are certain parameters you should fit in order to be an acceptable human – things like appearance, age, race, gender, sexuality – 9 O’Clock Nasty gamely tackles these narrow standards, flips them on their head and poses the question “Can someone different love and be loved?” The answer is an unapologetically and defiantly shouted affirmative, accompanied by wailing guitars, growling bass and tight, energetic drums.
Make sure to stream the rambunctious feel-good riot that is I’m Bent “

Edgar Allan Poets @edgarallanpoets "I’m Bent will make you feel like the girls on roller skates who served hamburgers in the 70s. This song winks at the classic rock. A bit of Beach Boys together with Lynyrd Skynyrd obviously seasoned with the fascinating strangeness of these guys from Leicester. By now this band has created their signature sound and they can also explore new genres but the foundations are so solid that their music is always recognizable no matter what they do. One thing I have never mentioned is the covers and the videos. The psychedelic universe created by the 9 o’clock Nasty is also evident in the visual part of their project…always bizarre and brilliant. I’m Bent is a nice wild ride that will leave you in your underwear like Zuckerberg on the cover."

Sinusoidal @sinusoidal.music “Their sound is always unique, and riffs have laced within it a small amount of nostalgia. When I say laced, it’s calculated-like a Cosby decimal. Anyway, I digress from writing a splendid review for their latest rock track. 9 o’clock Nasty maintain that silky fuzz from radio tracks you would hear, especially when you drove at the countryside. To hide incriminating evidence. This is just another track that boils down their inspirations into one consolidated piece…It’s philosophical, so buckle in. 

MangoWave Reviews @mangowavereviews "Like a heavyweight steam roller, 9 o’clock nasty plough through beauty palaces, gyms, boutiques, and bars. The rubble they leave behind is covered in love and rainbows, and it contains the one important message: you’re beautiful, and you should dance and work out to this tune."

We Write About Music @wewriteaboutmusic “Says the band on their description of the song, it’s a “bizarre mix of drunken Roxy Music and sober Nirvana kick their way out of the speakers, lick your face and steal your beer.” There’s no way we could describe it better than they could, but that’s because it’s perfect. Through loud shouts, head banging, crunchy guitars, and an immense enthusiasm, this song is ideally tailored for a night out on the town. Whether you’re gearing up to go out or coming back from a wild night, let “I’m Bent” serve as the theme song to your evening and life.“

Less than 1000 Followers @jpgchief “I’m Bent does not fall short in the list of Nasty bangers, as it is an anthem for the different. A celebration of life, love, sexuality, gender, race, and even age. Polishing their sound while still staying true to their roots, the Leicester trio is blending all they love and represent… the chorus  hits before we even realize what’s going on. It is a big, powerful sound, with the Nasty energy we’ve all grown to love. Wailing guitars, smacking drums, growling bass, and a lot of vocals! Brilliant”

@darkstrudel “Fuck. They did it. After so many experiments, twists and leaps in different directions, finally we have a 9 o’clock Nasty song that brings together all the elements into one two-minute assault. Pure Nasty. Everything is set to full on attack. A bizarre mix of drunken Roxy Music and sober Nirvana kick their way out of the speakers, lick your face and steal your beer.”
