Bio

'Zimbabwe' & 'Tapioca' taken from our newly released EP 'Uluwatu',were written in Uluwatu, recorded at Freefall Studios and mixed by Jono Ma ____________________________________________________________ Check out the 'Zimbabwe' film clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UWK8v9ufG8 ____________________________________________________________ In The Navy's short existence we've shared stages,schooners & shenanigans alongside Wolfmother,Dappled cities,SBTRKT,Miami Horror,Hungry kids of Hungary,Grafton Primary & The Philly J's. Pristinely dressed Sydney lads who play a dreamy romantic style of indie pop dripping with reverb and the jingley jangley guitars! (DR.PONG,11/12/10) Sydneysiders New Navy don’t struggle to create an atmosphere with a punchy set of British indie homage and US college rock pastiche. Having been compared to 80’s loving sombre souls Editors, NN live actually pack a much cheerier outlook bringing the crowd to life with some multi-instrumentalism and more drums than you can throw a stick at.(FASTER/LOUDER w/Wolfmother @The Espy Melbourne, 29/7/2010) If you can tell within the first 4 bars of a song that a band has serious potential, you are onto something good. With pure, strong voices and a punchy indie-Brit sound that could be paralleled to the Cold War Kids, these guys haven’t got long until they hit headlines (in the musical world that is). Snazzy use of editing, good sounds, solid melodies, strong voices; nothing too new or out of this world, but you can tell immediately that New Navy have got what it takes to thrive in today’s musical climate. There is an obvious influence from the Klaxons & the Editors, which sat pretty well with the audience who filled the space on this particular night. Murmurs of approval rippled around the room as the boys belted out their music – they set the bar pretty high for the acts to follow that night.(MUSICFEEDS w/The Seabellies@Beach Road Hotel, 27/10/2010) A bunch of Kodoks.... (Wayan,Uluwatu,20/7/10) ____________________________________________________________ New music coming 2012 we promise............... ____________________________________________________________ http://www.facebook.com/newnavy

Ace. Upbeat, mel...

Ace. Upbeat, melodic, danceable and catchy as hell. And they got 'holiday' to rhyme with 'Zimbabwe'. Genius.
