I remember when music blogging was one of my new endeavors, where as now it feels like a daily activity that seems to happen routinely, almost with no effort now. It's great to look back on everything I've wrote, and especially to look back on the connections I made. One of my first as an EARMILK writer came from an indie/electronic, Jamaica, Queens based trio name Neonfaith. Members Lay and Fef originally hooked up to produce hip hop tracks for Queens-based music collective Audio Never Dies (A.N.D.), but both were drawn to the innovative sounds that were emerging from the ever changing genre. With the intent of carving out a unique spin on the indie game, Neonfaith was formed and Megan Faye was rightfully recruited to back the vocals.
If you remember, I first introduced you to them by sharing their debut self-titled EP, a gem that garnered a good amount of first impressions in that short week of October. We saw extremely gritty appeals, followed by even darker tones. I love the style of Neonfaith because even when it seems like indie can't get any lighter, these guys swoop in with a darker style then Bane in a black hole.
Today they release the the first single off of their next EP, titled "Between the Lines." Listen in now and grab the free download of their self-titled EP from their website, and our second EP, Jungle Fever, will be coming out in August.
