The Slim Kings
The Slim Kings feature two young guns - singer and guitarist Michael Sackler-Berner, best known for songs on Sons of Anarchy, and R&B bassist Andy Attanasio alongside iconic drummer Liberty Devitto. DeVitto spent over three decades playing on seminal records for and performing with Billy Joel, Stevie Nicks and Paul McCartney. The Slim Kings have over a dozen primetime TV placements and thousands of followers online. They have shared the stage with Los Lonely Boys, ZZ Top, Southside Johnny, and The Spin Doctors - amongst others. In the studio they work with producers like Joel Hamilton (Tom Waites, Black Keys) and Steve Jordan (Keith Richards, Solomon Burke). The band is based in Kings County, USA.
Blending electronic elements with fuzzy guitars and haunting vocal harmonies, 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, Hole, 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.
