The video for Newtimers’ single Best of Me, which premiered on Clash, is available to watch now on YouTube.
EP One is a blend of synth pop, RnB and 80s soul with the duo Andreas Britton Cavaco (vocals) and Tim Lundblad (drums, production), finally coming together as Newtimers after writing and recording music for many years under various guises for miscellaneous projects and collaborative ventures.
The tracks on the EP were written at a time when the pair were both suffering from broken hearts. “It’s full of who, what, wheres and whys – seeing past, present and future,” say the band and although the songs were written under somewhat sad circumstances, there’s more hope here than melancholy.
The duo have had dalliances with various labels from indies to majors but finally as Newtimers, they’re ready to present their own brand of alt pop to the masses. Previous single Perfect Ten racked up nearly 90k plays on Spotify and the way the pair combine their influences, carving out their own unique space within the pop genre, is their biggest draw – it’s hard to pin Newtimers down and that’s a good thing.
The EP also features two remixes of Best Of Me by Monsieur Adi and Sailor & I. Critically acclaimed Monsieur Adi is known for creating the official remixes for Ellie Goulding as well as Beyonce, Bastille, Lana Del Rey and The Kooks, his remix is available to stream and download for free via the band’s Soundcloud page.
Newtimers’ EP One is the perfect introduction to a band that are more than the sum of their various influences, they create modern pop that’s full of heart, soul and depth.
EP One is out now via Cosmos Music and available to buy now on Spotify and iTunes.
