Today’s song is “Hold Up Girl” by NGHBRS. This song is off the Long Island rocker’s highly anticipated debut, full-length album Twenty One Rooms out July 16th.
Fusing elements of alternative rock with catchy melodies, impressive musicianship, rhodes keyboards, and 90’s grunge, NGHBRS has made it their mission to always separate themselves from the pack. Formed in the summer of 2009, the band revolves around a strong work ethic, an intense practice schedule, and a constant fire under their belt. Drummer Jordan Schneider and guitarist Thomas Fleischmann have been playing in bands together for the previous 8 years, when they began to collaborate with vocalist/keyboard player Ian Kenny. Excited and intrigued about their newfound exploration, they moved into a practice space even before writing their first song. The band acquired bass player Eric Vivelo, and wrote and recorded their debut EP Hellomind, which was independently released in the summer of 2010.
