I’m enamored with NewVillager’s self titled album that dropped earlier this month. And to be completely honest, I have no idea why but I seriously cannot stop listening to it. Perhaps it is the vocals in general that are pushed so gracefully or maybe it is the playful harmonies that will easily bring a smile to your face. Courtesy of multi-instrumentalists Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini, NewVillager’s debut album has it all, from quirky guitars and power synths to flat out rhythm that will get that beat going inside of you.
As for my favorite track so far, “Upholder.”
If you are a fan of Empire of the Sun, MGMT and CULTS, you will definitely dig NewVillager.
