Billy Nomates Announces New Album ‘CACTI’, Unveils Video for New Single ‘balance is gone’

    Billy Nomates – the project of the Bristol-based songwriter and producer Tor Maries – has announced her sophomore album, CACTI. The follow-up to her eponymous 2020 debut is slated for release on January 13 via Invada Records. Along with the announcement, Billy Nomates has shared a NWSPK.-directed video for the new single ‘balance is gone’. Check out the track, the album’s cover art, and tracklist below.

    “Writing CACTI took just over a year,” Maries explained in a press release. “I wrote very intensely and then none at all. (This seems to be the way I work best). I picked up old drum machines, mapped out things in my kitchen with the same small micro keyboard I always use and then raided the cupboards and rooms at Invada Studios, to play and experiment with old synths, an upright piano, this weird organ thing. I hope everyone finds their own narrative in CACTI. I think it’s about surviving it all.”

    Of ‘balance is gone’, she said: “It’s a lot to ask, balance. Does anybody feel on kilter? Has anybody achieved all that harmony? I don’t think it’s a unique chase. And some days, it’s good to acknowledge it got up and left the room.”
