BILLY NOMATES - CACTI VINYL (LTD. ED. TRANSPARENT)
LIMITED EDITION TRANSPARENT VINYL
Release Date: 13th January 2023
"Billy Nomates, the project of the Bristol-based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tor Maries, announces the release of her much anticipated second studio album, ‘CACTI’, via Invada Records. Recorded at her flat and Invada Studios, ‘CACTI’ is a huge step up for the artist, who received widespread critical acclaim for her eponymous 2020 debut album, with heavy airplay across BBC Radio 6 Music and support from luminaries such as Iggy Pop, Florence Welsh and Steve Albini. Though every bit as unrepentant as Billy Nomates’ debut, ‘CACTI’ comes from a much more exposed place and sees Tor further develop her instinctive, inventive songwriting and production. Unafraid to wade into the traumas of the past two years and the eerie sense of apathy that lingers, alongside heartache and more political themes, the 12-track collection openly confronts uncomfortable truths, as Tor puts it, “70-80% of being bold is about being vulnerable as hell.”"
