Tune in/turn on to Navy Gangs, Ã¼ber-catchy DIY lo-fi indie-pop from NYC!
I first heard the EP-opener “Special Glands” a few months back, and it hit me like a bottle to the back of my head. Straight up premium power-pop in a slacker-suit, with a fuzzed-up guitar rough enough to chopÂ a wired barbed-fence in two like that. SNAP! Â As it turns out, all 4 tracks on this EP is as solid as anything I’ve heard from the bedroomÂ since Alex G’s DSU! Â By far my most treasured 7″ this year, be sure to tune in!
You. must. listen. to. this. EP.
Pressed in scarce 500Â copies via Modern Sky, this is one to grab ASAP! These guys are bound to go places.

Causing a stir in NYC right now this is the first release from the Omaha band. 90s bands like Superchunk, Teenage Fanclub and Dinosaur Jr spring to mind when listening which had us instantly hooked but there is also a definite hint of influence of bands from their hometown label Saddle Creek too. The Self Titled Navy Gangs EP was recorded in Noahâ€™s grandmother's home by Joey Kimono straight to 2 inch tape and was mixed and mastered by Steve Marion of Delicate Steve. This one has been hotly anticipated after a slew of amazing press and radio play and is sure to sell like hot cakes.
