NewVillager, from what I’ve read around the web, is an artist collective that is not just about the music but also the accompanying visuals, whether it be at their live shows or in their videos. Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini, the men behind NewVillager, are so dedicated that for their album “they recorded 10 versions of every song, each with different melodies, chords, rhythms, production, and lyrics, in an attempt to find the best overall representation of the NewVillager mythology“.
I’m all about the music, and what gorgeous music it is. My favourite NewVillager song is Black Rain/Genghis On, which is also the most incredibly difficult song to find online. If you like electronic pop like MGMT, Friendly Fires or Passion Pit, NewVillager are definitely the band for you. If you haven’t heard any of the aforementioned bands, then what the hell are you waiting for?
