ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Few new-millennium acts seem to have gotten the balance of familiar ’80s-club emotional throb and original contemporary energy just right, but this Austin-by-way-of-Orlando quartet is one of ‘em. Songs from the group’s upcoming full-length On The Sleeve sacrifice neither groove nor heft to their quest for resonant quality songcraft. There’s an earnestness to their tunes that defies the over-it, overly detached posturing of so much danceable rock, that pairs the cool with an engaging humanity. Also, of course, they kill it.

"...the trade-off boy/girl vocals recall punk for grownups of Versus or the Pixies." - Under the Radar

"Spindly post-rock guitar lines and traded boy/girl vocals bounce atop a bed of dance-friendly beats as the earnest search for true love continues." - download.com

"New Roman Times is in the same orbit as bands like The Pixies and Sonic Youth." - Image

"They understand that hooks are always just a terse guitar lick away." - allmusic
