Drawing from this pool of talented NYC luminaries, the band celebrates the US online release of their album today
Gramercy Arms and will be in all US relatilers on March 3rd
|This summery blast of power pop was recorded earlier this year in a wintry New York City. Clocking in at a concise 30 minutes, ‘Gramercy Arms’ was named after an imposing Art Deco apartment block at East 22nd Street. The album is a celebration of New York in all its dirty – beautiful splendor. A slice of West Coast pop with East Coast sensibilities.Drawing from a pool of talented musical friends, the album features a wide range of guest performances including the unexpected backing vocals of comedian Sarah Silverman on ‘Looking At The Sun’. Sarah had worked with Gramercy Arms members Rainy Orteca (Joan As Police Woman, Dead Air) and Dave Derby (The Dambuilders) before, on music for her television show, the Sarah Silverman Program.|
UK Press LOVE:
The majority of the songs are by Dave Derby of the Hawaiian-Boston based The Dambuilders–sun kissed, subtly well constructed things that suggest Teenage Fanclub occasionally touched by the all-American pop suss of Cheap Trick. It’s all at once woozily beautiful and incidental…
“mellow, jangling, likeable”
“They specialise in feathery soft summery pop, with Shining Bright worth the entrance fee alone and a sprinkling of gorgeous hand-clapped melodies Belle & Seb would approve of.”
