Video of the week! May I introduce you to NEWMEN and their new single and video “Venus Is A Boy”?! Taken from the debut album RUSH RUSH . The band from Frankfurt gives away the new EP with some great remixes as a free download at Soundcloud.
NEWMEN advises us to “take our pleasures seriously” – and provides some sonic tools to crank up the endorphins. Founded in 2011, the five-piece band spins slivers of pop jungles, post-garages and neo-waves into intense but subtle indie grooves.
In 2014 the band released their Debut-LP RUSH HUSH. The Album deals with the contradictory presence and its schizophrenic Retromania versus technological possession. Their response is an atmospheric dreamy and psychedelic soundscape that considers itself as a factitiousness Simulacrum. RUSH HUSH recombines the cold clarity of 1980s icons DAF with the epic noise of Velvet Underground or the synthetic meadows of David Bowie.
A sound experience oscillating between kraut, sun and disco. A turn to a new realism of sound by serving the last century’s modern – where the ‘Authentic’ sings over reason, RUSH HUSH is pushing it to take a dive.
