“Akin to blending the sonic freak outs of legendary krautrock pioneers Ash Ra Tempel with 90’s Japanese noise mongers Up-Tight or Ohkami No Jikan, London’s Casual Nun deliver some downright heavy psych – a blown out slab of distorted, hypnotic guitar buzz, heady, effect-laden vocals, and plodding drums, everything bleary eyed, garage-y, intense and drugged out! Anyone who has been diggin’ the aforementioned greats, GNOD, The Heads or Loop will definitely fall in love with Casual Nun – at least, we did immediately upon hearing Super Fancy Skeleton, Casual Nun’s debut release.” – Roadburn
Psychometrics are used to gauge and influence in a world where information digestion has moved increasingly towards social messaging. The ability of organisations and entities to use psychometric data to build a psychological profile of a person is an alarming manipulation of our personalities, aptitudes and desires.
With that in mind, ‘Psychometric Testing By…’ sees Casual Nun embracing a more improvisational approach, with the entirety of the recording created in Wayne Adams’(Shitwife/Death Pedals) Bear Bites Horse studio during the same session that produced their first LP ‘Super Fancy Skeleton’ .

” All tumultuous sounds hurtling through a cavernous echo chamber, the band dissect what it means to be psychedelic and discover a new-found jamming ethic, if you thought their debut was good, you haven’t heard anything yet… Coming so soon of the back of their excellent debut, this is an extraordinarily confident piece of music which takes their sound into ever different avenues… This is the true sound of the UK underground.” – Echoes & Dust
