Cutting vocals in the woods behind his college dorm. Mixing in the backseat of a sedan. Sneaking into the music department after hours to teach himself to play new instruments (and sneaking out before the faculty arrived in the morning). From the start, Mobley's work has been marked by solitude, ingenuity, and a drive that could only be called obsessive. Whether you experience his music on record or at one of his live shows (on stage, he's electric), the passion is palpable. Mobley grew up all over the world, from the Spanish Mediterranean to the California coast. Perhaps it's because of this itinerant childhood that he finds it so hard to sit still.

Over the last few years, he's composed dozens of pieces for stage and television (with placements on HBO, Fox, and NBC), played 200+ national tour dates (with the likes of Phantogram, JUNGLE, Mutemath, Robert Delong, & Wavves and at festivals like SXSW, CMJ, Savannah Stopover and Float Fest), and recorded (then scrapped) two whole albums in pursuit of the songs that would become his forthcoming full-length debut, Fresh Lies. Mobley wrote, produced, and played every instrument on the album. The music -- which Mobley calls "post-genre pop" -- defies easy classification, drawing liberally (often simultaneously) from an array of musical traditions. He's equally at home on a playlist next to The Weeknd and TV on the Radio alike, while his electronic, dub-dabbling production style calls to mind the intricate work of artists like James Blake and Thom Yorke.

This summer and fall, he's touring as a one-man band, singing and playing keys, guitar, bass, drums, and samplers. He's spanning the United States and Mexico in support of his newest EP release, Some Other Country, out now on Violent Films.
Camille, a singer-songwriter and Teddy, a drummer and producer, created NUEX in 2014. Both
lifelong musicians, the pair started recording demos in the basement of Camille’s house just
days after they met. One of these demos would end up becoming Lights Off, their debut single.
In those first few weeks, the duo honed in on a unique chemistry that would eventually define
their sound. The name NUEX, derived from the contextual French wordnue, meaningof the
heavens, sky, clouds, was chosen as a testament to their devotion to create big, beautiful and
otherworldly music, a feat the duo has succeeded in. It is also a representation of what they
want to bring to the table—somethingnew, as the name is pronounced. NUEX first brought
their sound to Liv nightclub in 2014 in D.C., in what would become their first of dozens of
shows along the eastern seaboard. NUEX have checked off spots in Philadelphia, Baltimore
and New York City, and have grown to become indie favorites in their hometown of D.C. They
are regarded highly by many industry insiders, and won the chance to perform and represent
Washington D.C. in Austin, Texas at SXSW in 2017 out of an applicant pool of thousands. NUEX
has had their work featured and mentioned in outlets like Afropunk, Saint Heron, Galore
Magazine, The Washington Post, and Washington Life Magazine.
NUEX’s debut EP,Affectus,is out now.
