The Britanys

Tall Juan releases new EP + plays Baby's All Right tomorrow (11.10) with The Britanys and Acid Dad,

I wonder how many musicians move to NYC just because of their love for The Ramones. It feels like garage rock has been in vogue in NYC since the beginning of time, and Baby's All Right tomorrow night will celebrate the most NYC centric of all genres with a trio of quality local artists. The Britanys (Deli Artist of the Month earlier this year and recently part of our CMJ shows) will headline the bill, sharing the stage with psych-garage rockers Acid Dad, another band that's getting some deserved buzz these days. But in this post we'll focus our attention on opening artist Tall Juan (pictured), since he just released a new EP entitled "Why Not?," where his mercurial and whimsical songwriting reaches new heights. The Queens via Buenos Aires artist got his EP recorded and mixed by Mac DeMarco, with whom he shares a bizarre attitude, an uninhibited vocal delivery and a preference for clean guitar sounds. 


The Britanys unveil new single 'City Boy' + play The Deli Garage/Slacker Rock CMJ Stage on 10.15

The fascination of the NYC scene with the garage rock sound is long lasting and probably indestructible - you can blame The Ramones. Brooklyn's The Britanys, who recently expanded their line up from power trio to... almighty quartet (?), are one of the most fun recent expressions of a genre that blends grating guitars with simple melodies and oodles of attitude. They just released this new single entitled 'City Boys,' and will be performing at our very own Garage/Slacker Rock CMJ Stage on October 15 at Muchmore's.

The Britanys play Baby's All Right tonight (07.17) with Las Rosas and Tall Juan

It's always a good sign when a band maintains a good pace as far as releases are concerned. Brooklyn's garage rockers The Britanys (a band whose singer might win the award for the 'most nasal sounding vocals in the universe') released their sophomore EP back in October 2014 and in June 2015 already had a new track for their fans, entitled 'It's What it Is' (streaming below). The Ramones guitars, the attitude os Sex Pistols and Doo-Wop influences (a genre that lately we seem to find everywhere) blend effortlessly in the new single, which you'll surely be able to experience in a live setting tonight (July 17th) during the band's live show at Baby's All Right with other local likemanded bands Tall Juan and Las Rosas, opening for Mexico's garage rock hearos Rey Pila.

The Britanys release sophomore EP + play CMJ

We stumbled upon NYC garage pop trio The Britanys about a year ago through our digital submissions, and we hear now that the boys have been keeping at it, recently releasing a new EP entitled "It's All Right." Lucas Long's vocals tend to draw melodies that reference the Brit-pop bands of the 90s, with a tone that's reminiscent of Billy Corgan at his most nasal. However, the opening title-track (streaming below) shifts things toward a speedy garage blues that perfectly suits the band's "naughty" and youthful attitude. The Britanys will be performing twice this week within the CMJ Music Marathon, at Muchmore on 10.24 and at Arlene's Grocery on 10.25.


From The Deli NYC's submissions: The Britanys

The Britanys' anxious riffs in tracks like 'Coming Home' or 'Ravens in the Night' keep you thinking things are about to fall apart, but after listening to all of their debut EP 'Hello Britany,' I'm convinced there's no stopping them. Their reinterprestation of the loud/quiet/loud dynamics that informed so much of the best indie guitar rock of the 90s is an irresistible invitation to the most epic of (and somewhat slo-mo) of mosh pit dancing, which is always a great way to burn holiday calories. Check out their EP opener "Mamma Says". - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
