Z Gun

"These Spaniards have gotten better since I last heard them. Here they ditch their garagey inclinations for something a bit more art punk, loud art punk of the variety done by Popular Shapes or Hiroshima Rocks Around. I also hear a bit of the Lars Finberg influence here, a man whose impact on Spanish rock & roll surpasses even the Ramones, really. Ahem. So Las Nurses…two songs, high energy, twisty, and damn good. Excellent single, mis amigos!"

Muzikalia

"Desde Asturias, de la mano del pequeño pero estupendo sello Discos Humeantes, nos llega el que ya es el segundo single de Las Nurses. Este grupo formado por jóvenes veteranos de la escena local de Oviedo practica un sonido ruidoso y elemental marcado a fuego por riffs muy cabreados y un ritmo diseñado por elementos descontrolados de algún manicomio guatemalteco.

Las dos canciones del single, “Apples & Hatreds” y “So Tired”, son dos píldoras de poco más de dos minutos que se van directo al hígado como un puñetazo de Max Schmeling. Cortadas por el mismo patrón, a caballo entre el Post-Punk y el Rock más ruidoso, tienen un sonido sucio y garajero que unidos al ametrallamiento de guitarra y una batería que no conoce la palabra misericordia cambian el día del que se topa con ellos.

El single ofrece una excelente carta de presentación para un grupo que tras escuchar los dos cortes queda claro que sus directos tienen que ser su plataforma preferida. Resulta fácil imaginar a estos tipos en un escenario berreando y maltratando a sus instrumentos. Esperemos que poco a poco vayan consiguiendo abrirse paso y grabar suficientes canciones para poder entregarnos todo un LP que colme las ansias de los que vamos poniendo una y otra vez este single antes de que dejemos sus caras planas como el cristal."

Lowcut Magazine

"Spain's answer to A-Frames is back with yet another killer 7". And yes, it's an even more inspired slap of quirky aggressive postpunk this time around. Odd drum patterns, loud pounding bass and earpiercing guitar licks that drill it's way into your skull...backways, sideways, frontways...leaving you wonderfully molested. Kinda like a funky version of The Fall, only sexier and more violent. Las Nurses have also released a tribute 7" to the mighty Oblivians, so y'know these Oviedo amigos got gooood taste."

Terminal Boredom

"I was into Las Nurses' first seven-inch, and this one ain't too shabby either. Dark and angular post-punk herky-jerk, in line with NKK and TMIBH(the good records) a bit. Tense guitars, projectile bass lines carrying the tunes, locked-down drumming, a singer who keeps it under control. One song per side, when they lock it in on "So Tired" it's pretty impressive and powerful. If it was an American band making this racket, they would have eight singles out already on various labels and be living in Brooklyn somewhere. As it is, it's just pleasing to know they're there in Spain doing their thing, oblivious to the fickle whims of the American Garage-Punk Sub-Underground, and just releasing records on a homegrown label and maybe playing with some cool bands that come through now and then. That's what it's all about, man"
