Blending electronic elements and synthesizers with fuzzy guitars and haunting vocal melodies, NEW MYTHS create a sound that catches you and keeps you. A Brooklyn/NYC-based power trio with a new wave/rock sensibility, NEW MYTHS is the collaboration of Rosie Slater (drums/vocals), Marina Ross (bass/vocals) and Brit Boras (guitar/lead vocals).
The trio set out to write music that they loved, and started out by combining elements of bands that influenced them such as Blondie, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nirvana, Garbage, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Joy Divison. "NEW MYTHS manage to bring on the rawness of a power-trio 90's Muffs with the smoothness of a glammed-out 80's Blondie." - Pancakes & Whiskey
Since releasing their self-titled EP in 2012, their song "False Gold" was featured by Lou Reed on his XM radio station as well as in surf company REEF's spring ad campaign. In 2014, both The New York Times and The Gaurdian wrote up NEW MYTHS as top performers at CMJ Music Festival. Building a following with a powerful live show and a uniquely dark and dance-able sound, NEW MYTHS released their debut album "Give Me Noise" October 2014 via their own imprint Taming Ghosts.
Surf Rock is Dead
Originally hailing from Chicago and Melbourne, Australia, Kevin Pariso and Joel Witenberg--together Surf Rock is Dead--embody the beachiness of their namesake's genre through a new wave filter. Praised by Noisey and EARMILK, the duo's captivating live show is crashes over you in the best way possible.
Described as "pure ear candy," the EP starts off with "Jumprope" which quickly introduces what Gingerlys are all about songs filled with fuzzy guitars, dreampop melodies, guitar hooks galore and Maria's soft sultry vocals. The second track "Summer Cramps" switches from dreamy to jangly, a summer pop anthem that is insanely catchy. The Bside opens with the headrush breakneck speed of "Better Hearts" and closes with the delightful Feltish guitars of "Set You Off".
