SHORT BIO

The NYC duo evolves towards new different directions in every song.

They have an enviable eclecticism in their songwriting and they know

how to mix it well. The band put together touches of new wave, punk rock,

pop and arena rock to then go back to the rawness of rock n roll melted with

moments of smoothness and dream-like pop melodies in the middle of

chaotic and psychedelic breakdowns, plus that extra of 80's post-punk

textures mixed with crispy and powerful riffs coming from guitarist Kick

plus the euphoria of the multi - faceted Rossano's voice which reminds

you sometimes a young Grace Slick singing 'White Rabbit' at Woodstock.

Think Pretenders meet Joan Jett in the mid 80's at Madison Square Garden

or Billy Idol meets Patti Smith at CBGB's.

The charismatic rock duo formed in NYC in 2012 and cut their teeth in the

East Village underground scene since then.

INFLUENCES

Patti Smith, Pretenders, Blondie, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Ramones, The Smiths, The Cure, Joan Jett, Sex Pistols, Depeche Mode

BAND QUOTE

‘In an era where confusion has turned into a great tool used to ‘guide’ people’s lives through massive manipulation, we think that it’s imperative to follow our instinct and choose our own path. For this song, we wanted to explore themes of alienation, hypocrisy, confusion and interconnect them with brief moments of hope, unity and rebellion."

'New Rock City treat rock aficionados to one of the sultriest rock anthems since Joan Jett was on the scene. I’ve always particularly drawn to a powerful lead female vocal behind a rhythmically eclectic sound, but there’s something extra that New Rock City brings to the rock scene. Their new single 'Right Now' is unobtrusive, it’s seamlessly aligned through the palpable sentimentality of the lyrics along with Rossano’s vocals, yet it has all the edge you’d expect from a rock track. Rossano is the epitome of the natural performer, her energy is timelessly infectious through her raucous attitude and charismatic euphoria which surrounds her. Kick’s guitars are a mix of soaring hooks and crisp melodies which ensure New Rock City its instrumental perfection. The NY 4-piece band have already created quite the buzz around their music and there’s still more to come with the much-anticipated second album due to drop later this year.' - Amelia Vandergast , A&R Factory UK
