New Row are a powerful young guitar-led pop band from Toronto, fusing immediate Pop hooks with a hard rock edge and a Brit sensibility. They're here to save indie music for passionate guitar-led songwriting.
Fronted by the charismatic Bewlz, the band backs their lyrical, intense and original songwriting with a dynamic live show
Formed in 2014, they have quickly risen to prominence in the Toronto scene, headlining all the city’s top venues, touring to Chicago, and filming a special for Rogers TV.
WAGING WAR carries the best of the band’s output so far, with 16 songs running to over 70 minutes. Look out for the recent single The Day That Never Ends, a poignant yet manically upbeat break-up song set against the backdrop of Toronto’s terrible traffic; Belong, NEW ROW’s live anthem with its totemic chorus and keening harmonies; Home, a transcendent love story told through a dream of the apocalypse; and next single Dreamtime, a tale of writer’s block seemingly recorded at a Black Crowes after-party hosted by Beck.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.
