87 and The Toys Release diverse, alternative EP ‘Japanesy If You Pleasey’

Indie, Pop

87 and the Toys are back with ”Japanesy If You Pleasey”, which combines Japanese and American culture into their current indie pop style, pondering every day issues from goading incumbent Republican Governor of Georgia over his attitude of Covid-19, to the sadness of realising there are no more Bojack Horseman episodes to watch.

87 and the Toys subscribe to the school of absolute musical purity with no filters or overblown production techniques, instead choosing to embody a commitment to authenticity.

With Dave on stand-up bass and Guitar, Hana on min-drum kit, piano and vocals, and Patrick on Rhythm Guitar and Vocals, fans are in for a treat. As Hana hails from Japan, the rich culture infuses the EP thoroughly with Eastern elements. This is found in the tracks ”All you can eat Sushi” – a song initially written as a joke by Patrick to convince Hana to go to a sushi restaurant.

Another Track to set your psyche on a spiral is Bojack, written about the fascination of a new series (in this context ”Bojack Horseman”) after Patrick had binge-watched the show and suddenly realised their are no more episodes to watch.

Filled with different sounds and elements, 87 and the Toys have excelled in representing a multitude of genres with their new EP, and are an impressive showcase of why bands that don’t take themselves too seriously are more than capable of producing great tunes.

Brooklyn band Newborn give new life to rock – new single ‘Beautiful Disguise’ and upcoming EP

Rock, Uncategorized

These boys from Brooklyn know something or two about the rocky road…

“Rock is not dead. Brooklyn trio Newborn released a new single called ‘Runaround’ last week, and it is everything you have been waiting for.!    – AXS Magazine

“The Coney-Island natives are forging a path for a new generation of rock lovers with a DIY attitude and mainstream accessibility.”!   – Pure Grain Audio

Following the release of groovy indie single ‘Runaround’, Brooklyn band Newborn have now released the second track from their upcoming EP, a smoky guitar anthem called ‘Beautiful Disguise’ that discusses the use of lyrics to hide one’s flaws and mortality.

Listen to ‘Beautiful Disguise’ here: https://soundcloud.com/newborn-6/beautiful-disguise

The band’s refreshing sound is the result of a multitude of rock influences including Muse, Nirvana, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Arctic Monkeys.

Formed by high school friends Allen James and Eric Weglicki who met in 2005, the two jammed for several years before finally finding a bassist and drummer, playing their first gig in 2013 as a four-piece band. This was later cut down to a three person lineup, both drummer and bassist leaving, the band finding their current percussionist Blake Suben, guitarist Eric Weglicki switching to bass.

Frontman Allen discusses the band name, which stemmed from an incident in an elevator one day: ‘It was one of those days where my depression was really bad. The elevator doors opened and a mother came strolling in with her baby. The baby looked right into my eyes and gave me the silliest, happiest smile I’ve ever seen. It completely obliterated my bad mood. I told Eric the story later that day and we decided to call our band “Newborn”. To us the name represents a way of looking through life with constant marvel and to always live in the moment. The way a child does.

 

Allen has battled with depression for a long time, initially causing him insomnia, sometimes only averaging five hours of sleep a week. Upon leaving a four year college course in physical therapy to form a band, he found that this depression and insomnia was cured. In a wicked twist of fate, he then began receiving bizarre muscular skeletal problems that that caused him to fall into another bout of depression.

 

Most of our songs were written during this time,’ he recounts. ‘On one hand my life was going so well in that I was doing what I loved and being loved for doing it, and on the other hand it was just a complete nightmare. I’m definitely not out of those woods but I am trying to keep a positive attitude . Music is perhaps the biggest reason for that. It really does heal people.

 

The upcoming EP, self-titled Newborn, was mastered by Joe Laporta, who has worked with artists as esteemed as David Bowie, Foo Fighters, The Weeknd, The Killers and Imagine Dragons.

 

The EP is scheduled for release June 14th.

Twin Tracks Ready For Release – September

Music

SinFiction are ready to rock this summer with double single releases ‘Painted Memories’ and ‘Ugly Baby’. With a huge sound that stretches from the likes of Oasis to Kings of Leon via the Killers and early Strokes, they are already making waves in the industry having supported Alabama 3, Ocean Colours Scene, Steve Cradock and Toploader. Already making a splash with local papers and radio – including BBC Introducing – in Oxfordshire, the stage is now set for the band to break out into the wider UK consciousness.

Capture

Their support slot for Alabama 3 was amongst their highlights to date because it was part of Brixton jam “and was absolutely packed – a really dark venue great for loud rock music”.
