History[edit]

The band was formed as a duo in 2008, by Andrea Lukic and Daniel Pitout.[4] From 2008 - 2011 the band released several EP's on labels such as Fast Weapons,[5] Deranged Records,[6] Isolated Now Waves,[7] Swill Children[8] and Critiscum Internationale.[9]

Nü Sensae released their first full length LP "TV, Death And The Devil" in 2010[10] on Nominal Records which was named one of the top 10 punk albums of the year by Exclaim Magazine.[11] In September 2011, Nü Sensae announced the addition of guitarist Brody McKnight to the band.[12] Their sophomore album, "Sundowning", was released on August 7, 2012 via Suicide Squeeze Records[13] and was given an 8.0 rating by Pitchfork Media.[14]
