Nutrients is a Toronto band known for gentle and jangly pop songs. Formed in Montreal in 2015, the group has slowly but surely grown into something more elaborate than their humble, bedroom-pop beginnings.
The self-titled, debut Nutrients album, Nutrients, was released by Birmingham, Alabama independent label Earth Libraries in late 2019. The release saw the band’s softly-sung, breezy bedroom pop evolve into something more dynamic compositionally. The 9-song, 28-minute collection is mostly carefree and casual, yet occasionally tightly-wound and unpredictable. Highlights included the shapeshifting lounge pop of Such Slime, the duelling guitars of Hide & Seek, the gentle saxophone turns of Suede, and the penultimate piano ballad Hyperbole.
The group spent the pandemic mining for forgotten sounds alongside a new member in instrumentalist Ben Fukuzawa. The fruits of their labours will be proudly on display on their brand new full length album, due out in 2021.
