Near Death Experience (NDX) are a four-piece band from Ealing, London. Since forming in 2016 and playing Glastonbury 2017, they’ve gained a reputation for powerful, emotive live performances and a “shimmering psyche-tinged rock’n’ soul” sound.
The Last Summer EP was launched in 2017, with the title track Summer played by BBC Introducing. NDX set up Ealing Live in September 2018 to encourage new and original live music in West London, hosting regular nights in local pubs as an alternative to the usual covers bands. A host of new bands have since played Ealing Live, including Tall Poppies, The Family Dog, Lola Aviva, and more… and locals have loved being introduced to new and exciting music. This led to NDX hosting the Ealing Oxjam Festival in June 2019, which raised hundreds of pounds for Oxfam.
NDX spent 2018 working on their first album Mouth to Mouth, which was released on 12 July 2019, pre-empting their opening slot at the Ealing Blues Festival. The rest of 2019 and early 2020 was spent writing and recording new album The Release due out in 2021 and hosting more Ealing Live gigs.
Three singles were recorded and released during the 2020 pandemic – Conquer, Moves and Lord for Christmas – all receiving rave reviews from underground bloggers and lots of indie radio play. Continuing the momentum, NDX have kicked off 2021 with new funky psychedelic soul single Everything, released 29-01-21 – you can also watch the video on the NDX YouTube channel.
