New Navy were one of the best new listens I came across in 2011. These guys delivered pop rock gems like “Zimbabwe” and “Tapioca”, both included on their wonderful EP release Uluwatu. I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of the EP last year, and while it arrived a bit late for summer fun for us here in the States…it definitely allowed folks like me an opportunity to forget about the onset of the coming winter.
Recently, however, New Navy decided to take on Télépopmusik’s track “Breathe”, replacing the guest vocals of Angela McCluskey on the original with the vocals of Ben McInerney. What else has changed?
Well, instead of going the electronic route the band traded it in for the signature summery sounds their indie roots create; soft, fun, beautiful…New Navy definitely have a sweet sound. Their cover of “Breathe” is pretty sweet as well.
