New Madrid

Friday, November 16, 2018, 5:00 AM

New Madrid is a band from Athens, GA, calling it their home base for the last 6 years. Playing over 500 shows since their inception in Chattanooga, TN, in 2011, they are a live force to be reckoned with.Theyve released 3 full length albums and 1 live E.P.On their last record, Magnetkingmagnetqueen, they eschewed a chiller iteration of psychedelic rock and pop, flirting with songs sharper,murkier and more decidedly post punk. There is still a sad number or two. If you are going to call them southern, that would be apt, but in the gothic vein-think Flannery OConnor, Pylon, The Louvin Brothers, Jay Reatard or My Morning Jacket. Their songs are as propulsive and driving as they are soaring and other worldly. A lot of them make you want to move your entire body. Ambient swells and no wave feedback freak outs. Since touring the country and Europe in support of MKMQ, theyve been writing and recording their follow up. Theyve never not had another show on their schedule. Testing songs in the live setting is an important component of their creative process. The band feeds off the energy of the crowd and the space they are playing in. Like a wave washing over you.Theyve got something to say, you just have to be willing to listen. Growing more certain of their sound everyday, even as the world they inhabit becomes less certain. Their next record is due in 2019.
