I’m sure we’re all sick of talking about the persecution/death/resurrection/easter eggs (yay!) debate about guitar bands so let’s approach this from a different angle. Yes, The New Union are a four-piece BAND from Brighton. And yes, they play euphoric indie music which MAY CONTAIN GUITARS but they do it far better than many/most of their peers.
If The National were forced to eat steak and potatoes every day then they might have sounded a little like this. It’s muscular and rapid, full of big sweeping melodies with heart-felt sensibilities. Considering they’ve only got two tracks on their soundcloud, it’s of impressive quality for such a young band. You can imagine The New Union will get picked up very quickly by a major label, so listen to ‘Without You’ whilst they’re still fresh out of the oven.
