Growing up in Galway, Ireland the four members of NewDad thank a random band name generator for their unusual moniker. Dark and stormy with undeniably beautiful moments amid the mammoth guitars, their debut EP Waves (out on Fair Youth Records) acted as a perfect introduction to the world of NewDad. There’s a heaviness to the music, which the band pin to a love of The Cure, Pixies, and Slowdive among others. But it’s not just in the feedback that NewDad find their truth, Julie’s songwriting brings a subtlety to their sound, weaving personal relationships and influences from the worlds of literature and cinema.
