I seldom get excited about dark and moody postpunk, but here’s a new band from Boston that is the exception to the rule. New Oblivion just dropped a four-song Demo on Tape. The songs of New Oblivion are decidedly lo-fi, drenched in noise and reverb, and filled with passionate and heartfelt vocals.
While it may be the kind of music that is easy to dismiss while doing a quick scan, New Oblivion are the kind of band to quickly win you over once you let the songs play out and pay just a little more attention. Yes, this is the kind of postpunk I can get behind, and New Oblivion are a band-to-watch.
