Sort of Erasure / New Order (musically) but with female vocals - ranging from sweet to angry.

Best described as darkwave/synthpop with a twisted lyrical edge. The music of NURVIS combines 80's and 90's influences with contemporary electronic styles. In other words, NURVIS try to embrace those things from the past that got them into music, yet incorporate new sounds and new ideas to create something original and timely.
Why this name?
"NURVIS" is a combination of the two members last names "Nurminen" and "Orvis".
Do you play live?
We are looking to do some live shows this summer in the Los Angeles, California area.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's a whole new market for aspiring, as well as established artists of all genres and styles.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If a good deal was offered to NURVIS, we'd take it.
Band History:
Formed in 1996, after Paul placed a classified ad in a local music magazine looking for a vocalist. Susan responded (among others who were far less qualified), and the writing went well from the start.
