We get quite a bit of e-mail here at Thought on Tracks. And by “we,” I really mean Rob. Just like 95% of the Internet, the majority of it is garbage, but on occasion there are ones that strike the eye, or ears in our case. The latest for me is NYC’s Neonfaith, a band who “does not suck” according to their subject line of their e-mail submission. And well, they are most certainly correct, because the word “suck” doesn’t belong anywhere near the realm of their music. Limited information is available regarding this new act. What I can tell you is that the group is comprised of Lay, Fef, and Megan along with the fact that they have two pretty great singles out right now. The first, “Escape”, features mysterious, heavy synth lines along with drum kits and keys. Oh yeah, and some absolutely killer vocals. Their most recent track that was released this week, “Tied Together”, is a minimalistic soulful jam that harnesses those lead vocals with the perfect amount of pitch and control. Both singles represent a unique group with a wide range of sound worth keeping an eye on as hopefully a full length album is just around the corner. Scope both tracks below and let us know what you think.
So yeah Neonfaith, you don’t suck.
