New Politicians started in late 2012 with Gian Cortese on guitar, keyboards and vocals and his brother Renal Anthony on vocals and guitar. The band, now a four-piece with Erik Watson on drums and Winston Mitlo on bass, are based in Centerville, New Jersey.
Off the new album Remission watch the bluesy dark and eerie Cut a Hole filmed in one of those locations you can only find in Weird NJ
November 2013 saw the band releasing their self-produced, sophomore EP entitled Drag a City. This four track release, available to stream & download on their BandCamp webpage, earned the band critical acclaim and an army of fans. Their highly anticipated new album 'Remission' released on April 21st.
Remission is an atmospheric and moody album, with a rich sound of cinematic saturation the music drenches you like a sudden downpour on a hot day.
As the band name indicates, lyrical and topically, New Politicians are refreshingly timely and relevant.
