In the Nursery
Led by Sheffield twins Klive and Nigel Humberstone, In the Nursery have been creating haunting epics since the early 1980s. Their earliest works tended toward the aggressive side of Industrial Dance, but as they developed as artists, their albums have come to unravel like a film soundtrack: indeed, they have scored films such as An Ambush of Ghosts and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. They rely primarily on electronic instruments to produce the lush sounds of an elaborate orchestra. Spoken word samples weave their way through the tracks and add haunting narrative elements. Their music evokes the heavy, eerie atmospheres of a Universal Pictures horror film.
