Maybe it’s the thunder of the ocean accompanying a guitarthat influences their bolstering sounds the most. Or maybe it was a band mate’s youth, tied up in forced-turned-flourishing piano playing, that aids the most in his band’s rich, haunting melodies. Or perhaps it was the years of friendship, offering an authenticity of lyrical honesty, that resonates so much with each and every listener.
Or maybe it’s because growing up in Australia gifted them with seemingly endless summers to ignite and inspire collaborative music playing. Whatever their influences, New Empire (comprised of Kale Kneale, Jeremy Fowler, Nathan Cairns, and Kyle Lane) has mastered the ability to create music as refreshing as their beach-bred roots.
With an agenda to produce music that listeners can get lost in and explore, New Empire’s sound introduces refreshing, complex, and authentic tunes that will truly envelope and awe.
It’s that talent, matched with their Down Under upbringing, that provided them a multitude of opportunities to play with established acts such as Owl City, Switchfoot, Neon Trees, and Reliant K (to name a few). Now, with their debut album on Tooth & Nail Records on the horizon, we see but a glimpse of what’s to come.
Get ready to get lost in a new sound. Get ready for New Empire.
