Blending fuzzy rock guitars with synthesizers and haunting vocal harmonies, NEW MYTHS create a sound that catches you and keeps you. A Brooklyn-based power trio with a new wave/grunge/pop sensibility, NEW MYTHS is the collaboration of Brit Boras (guitar/lead vocals), Rosie Slater (drums/vocals), & Marina Ross (bass/vocals).
The trio set out to write music that they loved, and started by combining elements of bands that influenced them such as Garbage, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nirvana, The Pretenders, Alanis Morisette, Hole, and The Bangles. They have cumulatively performed & recorded with other bands such as Frank Ocean, Total Slacker, Steve Van Zandt, Frankie Rose, Future Punx & Kristin Kontrol.
After releasing their self-titled EP in 2012, their song “False Gold” was featured by Lou Reed on his XM radio station as well as in surf company REEF’s spring ad campaign. In 2014, NEW MYTHS released their debut album “Give Me Noise” via their own imprint Taming Ghosts. Building a following with a powerful live show, both The New York Times and The Gaurdian wrote up NEW MYTHS as top performers to see at CMJ Music Festival 2014. Since then, NEW MYTHS have opened for major acts such as Metric & Warpaint. They are currently recording their follow-up release.
