Forming in early 2009, Old New York quickly developed a presence on the Brisbane live scene and have played their brand of late 80’s, early 90’s alt rock around the country. After a short hiatus, Old New York is back and set to release their third album 'Before We Hit The Ground'.
Old New York has developed from the collaborative efforts of previous bands into something that reflects each member’s musical preferences and tastes. Equal contribution to songwriting and performing keeps the band focused on producing the very best they can with what they can manage to scrap together. Their DIY attitude reveals their ambition to be heard in the current "No Budget" landscape of the music scene.
The band derives great pride in being personally responsible for all their own recording, mixing, PR, artwork, filming and web design. Old New York mix sixties style vocal harmonies with 80’s and 90’s indie rock and have twisted it into their own style of indie music that is both exciting and fresh.
