The New Respects - Freedom

1.    Who?

The New Respects are a rock’n’roll band from Memphis, Tennessee, that incorporate elements of pop, soul and the blues. They started in 2011 and have released one E.P. Freedom (May'18) is a stand alone single.

2. What?
Freedom is a rocker with a shout-out-loud chorus underpinned by groovy, head-nodding riffing, and a solid as rock rhythm section bringing a smidge of funk.

3. Who do The New Respects sound like?
Alabama Shakes, Elle King, and Lenny Kravitz.

4. What have the press said about The New Respects?

“A bright eyed take on throwback rock’n’roll” – NPR. 
“A ferocious sound that embodies all things carefree and radiant” – Local Wolves. 
“A fuzzed out blues rock aesthetic” – Rollingstone. 

5. Which bands influenced The New Respects?
Aretha Franklin, The Jackson 5, Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, and Mumford & Sons.

6. Why should I give Freedom a listen?
The New Respects have a modern take on blues rock. Freedom is fresh.

7. Do The New Respects have any more bangers?

Gospel tinged Trouble has a hint of huge hit Jungle by X Ambassadors & Jamie N Common.

8. Any more words?
The band is a family affair; two twin sisters, their brother, and a cousin.

Dirty Sidewalks are a shoe gaze band from Seattle, Washington. They sound like The Jesus & Mary Chain and Swervedriver. Dirty Sidewalks are influenced by bands like JAMC, Oasis, and Echo & The Bunnymen. Rock'n'Roll Save My Soul is track one from their debut album Bring Down The House Lights (Jan'18). Blurt Online described the song accurately as a, “thrumming, shimmering slice of JAMC pop revisionism.”
