NLP is a 4 piece from Toronto, fusing heavy riffs with melodic vocals. Their music spans across multiple genres of heavy rockn'roll, heavy psych, stoner-doom-step, and alternative/experimental rock. Their songs inject musical inspiration from classic heroes such as Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Candlemass, Tina Turner, DRI, Rage Against the Machine, Portishead to classical music composers such as Holst and Penderecki to the gut shaking drops of old-school drum & bass and raga. Their lyrics are inspired by the notion of a higher political narrative and the sociological systems of thoughts that shape us and larger society - the very essence of the practice of neuro linguistic programming.
2019 sees the debut album release of GREEN, a 12 song project that NLP has been working towards for years. The final output was a result of a DIY approach to recording, mixing and mastering with some help along the way from friends and masters in the Toronto scene and as a response to the music industry's continuous reshaping in the face of technology: WE ARE IN CONTROL OF OUR OWN ART.
Currently, NLP is working on their next album YELLOW.
The latest news in the world of NLP
"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told
the same tale, then the lie passed into history became truth. 'Who controls
the past, controls the future: who controls the present controls the past'.
And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered.
Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting.
It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over
your own memory."
"Reality control," they called it: in Newspeak, "doublethink." -G.Orwell, 1984
