The New Brides
Their name may evoke pristine scenes of bouquet-landscapes and nuptial-chamber chastity, yet the songs produced by Wellington indie-rockers The New Brides contain the same essential rock ‘n’ roll swagger and teenage-angst as London’s The Clash and New York’s The Strokes. Whereas Wellington’s residents have become accustomed to the swirling sounds of the ambient shoegaze genre, The New Brides conjure a raw sonic energy that captures the capitals’ blue-collar music scene set against a colorful backdrop of melancholic lyrics about love, loss and drugs.
