Sophisticated Spooky Grooves with a singer comfortable in the many aural landscapes this band traverses. NSI find a way to squeeze melody and hooks from minor and dissonant harmonic foundations.

Frontman Shane Watkins wide ranging vocal persona encompasses everything from Grinch like lows to ethereal highs. Shane's percussive/aggressive guitar style makes the ideal springboard in which to intertwine his profound lyrics in many inventive and creative ways.

Scott Lanphears open minded approach to the eccentric has led him to many an unorthodox sonic journey on both the guitar and keyboard.
His high energy and original style bring broad shouldered dissonance
and help carve out the overtones that form the NSI sound.

Brian J Martin is a heavy duty metronome with skillful hands and a unique rhythmic approach based on a foundation of serious feel, carrying the bands creative style through jazz and tribal ensembles.

Jolly Joe Harding's youthful exuberance and musical background make him a perfect fit to lay down the lows with stunning exactitude.
