Reviews for Disco Investors


Thank you to everyone that takes the time to listen to our stuff and writes about it. We try to link to and comment on what we see.

@jpgchief  "Heavier than Elon Musk’s ego, the riffs in this single by 9 o’clock Nasty are more of a statement than just strings making noise. “Disco Investors” is a track which of course comes with the Nasty’s inevitable sense of humor and unique sense of cynicism. A track made in collaboration with producer Hugo GT, a wanted man in most of his home country because of his criminal sound… But bad jokes aside, the riffs in this single are a beast, and it’s a song that hits hard and takes no prisoners. I never really understand what Nasty’s lyrics are about but they’re something about filthy rich mofos getting even filthier and richer, while the rest of us just crawl in the dirt.”

@KARLISMYUNKLE “The anthemic nature of the opus is tangible, and we can only imagine how incredible it would be to experience a 9 o’clock Nasty live performance, full of charisma and authenticity. Disco Investors is another eye opening and thought-provoking concept, which really allows us to see the world for what it really is. This is what makes 9 o’clock Nasty so highly unique.”

@sendmeyourears “Disco Investors comes straight in with slamming drums and a catchy and infectious guitar riff that immediately gets stuck in your head. Disco Investors has, like all of 9 o’clock Nasty’s songs, great use of stops and rise and fall to create a spectacular dynamic soundscape. The stops with drums interspersed with vocals are a sublime touch in this track and leave the listener absolutely engaged. Whilst we love the ‘shouty’, punky layered vocals of 9 o’clock Nasty, their strength (in our opinion) is when they’re harmonising, and the choruses here display some real moments. At times, the stops make use of slightly discordant guitars and add tension. The band make good use of shakers to add some top end to the track in all the right places. Don’t let the laid-back punky approach fool you, these guys know how to create a song that grabs your attention and runs off with it.”

@rockeramag “The brilliance of this song is not just in how every instrument complements the others, or how the lyrics are comical and sketchy, but in how every one of these elements is utilized to its best place. The transitions from one section to the other felt so smooth and well-placed that I didn’t think for a split-second that I’m listening to something different or that the mood had changed. For that catchy chorus, coherent songwriting, and overall glam-inspired vibe, I believe this song will garner a lot of success on the charts.”

@edgarallanpoets “9 o’clock Nasty is the voice of the underground…. Powerful and irreverent, now a hallmark of this band. They are raising a mammoth middle finger to the world and they continue on their way showing off their white buttocks.” 

@sonomusicgroup ““Disco Investors” is a high-energy track that combines glam rock and toxic masculinity with an unlimited supply of sugar snacks. …. 9 o’clock Nasty’s signature sound, which is heavily influenced by punk and rock music, is complemented by the production work of Hugo GT, a producer known for his filthy soundscapes and restless creativity.”

@musicforallmag “And understanding the pain of these poor rich people (laughs, many), the band decided to dedicate this humble and captivating explosion of riffs, strings and accented beats to this select group that wants the world to work out, only for them, in this case, and Of course, 9 o'clock Nasty went to great lengths to make people understand once and for all that the rich cry too (out of hatred for us poor people).“

@sinusoidal.music “…god knows they make it catchy. It has a Suck My Kiss like rhythm, but no one can write lyrics like Sydd, Pete and Ted. When you click 9 o’clock’s Spotify home page, it’s important to click the loop button before the play. …Congratulations to the terrifying trio for their hardest rocking song yet. It’s been cloudy here, so that song dried my socks to a crisp canap√©. 9 o’clock Nasty is one band that will organically grow to have the weirdest fan base that will engage in delightful debauchery”

@elnews Nasty unleashes a wild, high-energy explosion of sound with their latest single, "Disco Investors." This saucy banger takes the listener on a journey through glam rock, punk, and alternative rock, complete with super edgy male vocals and anthemic choruses. The band's collaboration with producer Hugo GT results in a sound that is raw, gritty, and downright addictive…. It's the kind of song that makes you want to throw caution to the wind and join the glitter-strewn rebellion.9 o'clock Nasty's sound is unmistakable, with a mix of garage and art rock that sets them apart from the crowd.”

@info_music_fr "Disco Investors" is an atmospheric song that could be listened to all day long. Indeed, this music is rich in sound and also in humour. The voices make us take off and travel and with the strong sound of guitar and drums, we are inevitably transported by the musicality of 9 o'clock Nasty. "Disco Investors" is a pleasant and fun song that has conquered us and will certainly do the same with other listeners.”

@mangowavereviews “The new nasty meets Hugo song combines the easy-going liberty of Disco with the rebellious attitude of Garage and Punk Rock. It is a song about the Disco Investors told from the Disco Investors‚ point of view, and if you have not already joined the movement yet, the catchy chorus will very likely make you look up how to build a guillotine. With riffs so nasty like it’s nine o’clock, the trio from Leicester and Hugo GT have produced the song that will make you take to the streets and protest – while dancing.”

@tjplnews “9 O’Clock Nasty have pushed out another rampaging single, this time titled, ‘Disco Investors.’ The bold sounds that 9 O’Clock Nasty have been cultivating for a time now come at you full speed. The light show of rock and roll blended with contemporary rock vibes gives this single one hell of a hook and one hell of a sound.  The beat catches you. It has a groove to it. The instruments are blaring, guitars squealing, bass rattling. The instrumental is about to go off the rails. The vocal catches it partway, it grabs the reigns and pulls it back on track. The whole song is propelled by a thunderous power that lives in the core of the tune. It's bright, upbeat and electric. 9 O’Clock Nasty have found a hole in the new-punk-rock space and are making it their own. ‘Disco Investors’ has the punk attitude, the rock volume and the creativity to send it into the stratosphere. A great track performed to the brink.”

@senocular.media ““Disco Investors,” is a rugged glam rock jam centered around money hungry investors moving from one scheme to the next. The song is highlighted by anthemic vocals, wailing guitar riffs, funky bass, and pumping drums. 9 o’clock Nasty’s latest single, “Disco Investors,” is a raw garage rock hit and the perfect addition to any rock playlist”

@yorkcalling “…what stays the same, though, is their irreverent and thoughtful approach to punk rock. Their latest takes a stab at billionaires getting their wealth from the suffering of others and it’s called Disco Investors. Disco Investors is lively dance rock with a tongue-in-cheek message. It rails against the illogical nature of our economic-political establishment where the wealthy have their thumb on the scales while most scrape by. The lyrics will make you angry, but its danceable melody will give you a release for that anger. Production comes once again from Hugo GT who take the 9 o’clock Nasty sound and makes it even nastier. Disco Investors is another banger from a band that simply demands to be noticed."

@themetalpriestess (Metal Asylum) “Opening with some funky guitar work, the riffs were made to stick in your head. As with previous tracks, the funkiness in the guitars is prevalent all the way through the track and this mixed with some heavy riffs, really does make the track stand out. Combining classic rock guitars, with punk influenced drumming, which is raw and energetic, and groovey basslines, really gives this band a quite unique sound. Add to the mix the quirkiness of the vocals, which combines punk-style leads and shouty back-ups, and you really do have something special.”

@plasticmag “This track is a perfect example of the band’s ability to take on serious subjects with a welcome touch of humour, making their music relatable and entertaining. The song’s driving beats and infectious guitar riffs also give it a real sense of urgency, making it the kind of track that demands your attention from start to finish. Overall, “Disco Investors” is a triumph for 9 o’clock Nasty. It’s a song that showcases the band’s unique sound and style, while also delivering a timely message about the dangers of greed and consumerism. With this latest release, 9 o’clock Nasty has solidified their place as one of the most exciting and innovative alternative rock bands in the UK music scene. So, grab your leather hat, put on those tight pants, and let “Disco Investors” take you on a wild, glitter-dusted ride that you won’t forget anytime soon.”
