The thrilling New York based band The Britanys have already cemented their place as one of the city’s must-know bands. From the apartment the four-piece share in Bushwick, to the stages of New York and further afield, they've forged a distinctive, immediate sound and a formidable live show. Their efforts have been rewarded with plaudits from the likes of NME, DIY, Interview Magazine, and Rolling Stone MX; support slots with Public Access TV, Hinds, and Rey Pila, and more; and reputation-building sets at SXSW two years in a row, and at rapturously received gigs overseas in London.
Their 2017 EP 'Five A Side' won them praise for its no-frills indie, and effortlessly cool attitude, but their arsenal of new songs, like the polished, glimmering swoon of recent single 'When I'm With You', show a band unwilling to rest on its laurels. It's only the beginning for The Britanys, but that makes their future look all the more exciting.
