The Dutch female fronted band, Nemesea, famous for combining rock with electronica to stir up a dark and strangely addictive brew – have fine-tuned this musical combination to perfection on their fourth album ‘Uprise’. The guitars and Manda Ophuis’ outstanding vocals continue to be the driving force behind Nemesea. The alternative rock trio has several surefire hits up its sleeve, and it’s impossible to not be enthralled by the all-encompassing balance between driving rock and soothing ballads. The album offers intense and soulful alternative rock complete with a subtle breath of goth and loudly demands the attention the band undoubtedly deserves. ‘Uprise’ is a gem that reveals its many-splendored colors more and more each time you press play!
