Nestor about “Caroline”:

“’Caroline’ is about time and motion wrapped up in a story of young hearts. The video takes place on an old train from mid 50’s which symbolizes the inner journey of a young weary soul. “

Having formed in 1989 only to fall into hibernation over three long decades, Nestor emerged stronger than ever in 2021 with their debut album, Kids in a ghost town, marking the band’s triumphant return to the spotlight and captivating fans with their timeless sound and unmatched energy.

The new album, “Teenage Rebel”, sets off with a captivating intro-monologue spoken by Danish voice actress Freya Miller, creating a retro, rebellious atmosphere that sets the mood for the album and prepares the stage for the opening track “We Come Alive” – a true blast of an opener. Rhythmic guitars create an exciting backdrop for the gripping vocals of frontman Tobias Gustavsson, leading towards an incredible guitar solo by guitar hero Jonny Wemmenstedt. The album’s title track, “Teenage Rebel”, convinces with tight riffing and an anthem-like chorus honoring the tradition of 80s hard rock. “Victorious” is an anthemic masterpiece combining powerful vocals with dynamic instrumentals, promising to creep in the listener’s head and reign as a fan favorite at their energetic live shows, while “21” is a wild ride celebrating the ease of youth. Touching ballads like “Last To Know”, “Daughter” and “The One That Got Away” present an even more vulnerable facet, reaching straight for the listener’s heart with yearning lyrics, while tracks like “Addicted To Your Love” and “Unchain My Heart” celebrate love, youth and the joy of being naïve.

Nestor on their new masterpiece:

“The album Teenage Rebel takes place in the glory days when we were young, confident and the future was filled with endless possibilities but also how we reflect on these days today. In many ways it’s the sequel to Kids in a ghost town and we can’t wait for you to hear it.”
