New Men, Neuman

Heineken Festival Review (II)

Can you imagine Coldplay or Travis including the banjo in one of their songs? Ok, just push play button and close your eyes.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have the pleasure to introduce you Neuman, a Spanish band composed of three members that has only been around for two years. Alrite, the voice is not the same as Chris Martin or Fran Healy, but their styles are really similar (at least for me). It's only a matter of time before they capture the rest of the world with their sound. Take a glimpse to some of their clips!

Warning : This video may offend your sensibilities.

Check out their bandcamp  site to get a whole bunch of their songs.

This is a photo of Paco Román (lead singer / rhythm guitar player) which I took at the festival this past weekend.

Yeah! I think they are very great! Like Logh and Nada Surf to me. It's one of those bands you can listen to while editing text and they won't suck. Highly appreciated!

Travis _does_ include a bajo in at least one of their songs :P

@BrainExpat, I think you meant baNjo, didn't you? Yep, that's true. It's very unusual in their tunes, though. Ok, I'll rewrite it to avoid LITL misunderstandings.
