[mp3] ANR: "Big Problem"
We've known the solid group of guys who compose team ANR (formally Awesome New Republic) for a few years, and we're pretty psyched to see them getting the love they deserve over the past few months behind their new record Stay Kids, which is out now on 10k Islands. ANR purvey hook-laden high-energy synth-pop tracks that have staying power on record, but are even better when consumed live. Miami's MJ Hancock and Brian Robertson know how to move bodies, but also know how to craft a song -- proving that it takes more than a four on the floor dance track to make a great album or live show. ANR play Public Assembly in BK tonight and Neon Gold's POPSHOP Thursday (4/7) at Tammany Hall. Dig their wild, weird, and NSFW slasher film for "Big Problem" above.
