Vinnie Barbaro, Marcus Rosella, Carlos Carosi and Jared Grimm are the talented blokes who make up one of Adelaide's gems, The New Yorks. This fun filled band reminds us a lot of bands like The Wombats, Last Dinosaurs, and Circa Waves. They've just released a new single and have announced a wicked new tour, things are getting exciting for these Adelaide locals!
This quirky bunch of fellas have graced Adelaide with an awesome and visually stunning music video recently for 'We Enjoy This Too Much', filled with all the VHS goodness you could ever dream of. Set in a wolf/human hybrid's house, The New Yorks give their audience a great taste of those nostalgic MTV music videos we all used to watch in the mornings.
“We Enjoy This Too Much is a rant about an irrational adoration for constant debate and agitation between a couple. It’s a bit of a complicated relationship... the idea of love-hate and what is actually healthy is one that is dwelled upon, with conversational lyrics intended to represent bickering about what to watch on Netflix. The temptation to push the quarrel in order to get one’s way is unanimously accepted to be a waste of time, instead they both take comfort in meaningless argument.” - Vinnie Barbaro
The New Yorks have just announced that they are heading out on the road for a tour in August, starting with a free show in Sydney and heading back to their roots in Adelaide for a special little show, before ending it all in Melbourne in September. Expect lots of fast paced guitar and heart pumping drums at this show, it's going to be one you'll remember for a while, and will be sitting on the edge of your seat praying for more of their gigs to attend. The boys will be releasing an EP titled 'I Wish I Was You, But That's Just Me' this month and we are absolutely jumping with joy, after the release of their singles 'Sir Wolf' and 'We Enjoy This Too Much' we got serious Vampire Weekend feels, this is going to be one rad EP.
Well, it's fair to say that we enjoy this band too much and you should too! Make sure to grab tickets to their upcoming shows and get ready to throw yourself into a wonderland of high energy indie greatness.
