Serena Maneesh @ the Mercury Lounge


Serena Maneesh look like a band of rock and roll gypsies. The band leader Emil Nikolaisen looks kind of like gypsy version of Prince, the bass player looks like Nico, and the rest dress between fashionable rockers and hippies. Serena Maneesh who hail from Norway have recently gotten a lot of press. Some of this buzz may have do to Pitchforks very favorable review. What every the reason is their show at The Mercury lounge rocked. Although the set was a little short and the sound wasn't quite perfect. Serena Maneesh played a great set of noisy, wall of sound, rock and roll. The band bring a lot of energy to their stage performance. With a three guitar assault Serena Maneesh rocked out hard. Although Serena Maneesh sound isn't that new. They have been compared to Sonic Youth, and My Bloody Valetine. However I would say they sound more like The Warlocks but they play with a speed and intensity that most of these other bands do not. Overall I was very impressed with last night's set. They will be back in NYC at the Bowery ballroom on March 6, tickets are on sale.
