NEWMEN advises us to “take our pleasures seriously” – and provides some sonic tools to crank up the endorphins. Founded in 2012, the five-piece band from Frankfurt / Germany spins slivers of pop jungles, post-garages and neo-waves into intense but subtle dance grooves.
In 2014 the band released their Debut-LP RUSH HUSH – an album dealing with the contradictory presence and its schizophrenic Retromania versus technological possession.
In 2015 their new EP QUICK MILLION containing five songs oscillating between kraut, sun and disco came out. Taking a turn to a new realism of sound by serving the last century’s modern – where the ‘Authentic’ sings over reason – QUICK MILLIONS is pushing it to take a dive.
The sound of NEWMEN flows from rediscovered treasures to recent wave adoptions, from psychedelic dreams to electronic rhythms, from drone walls to Italian holidays, from NYC muscle to Autobahn Düsseldorf.
NEWMEN are Joel Ameloot, Joerg Schmidt, Timm Kroner, Simon Rauland and Martin Heimann.
