Catching Up with New God

It’s been quite a week for Baltimore indie-pop duo New God. After releasing their sophomore LP Firework last week, brothers Kenny and Curt Tompkins were featured in NPR Morning Edition where they discussed their unique recording process and the thoughts behind their honest, endearing music. After losing their western Maryland studio space to a family of overactive skunks, the duo stumbled upon an abandoned racquetball court, which provided the ample amount of reverb and acoustics to suit Firework‘s Brian Wilson-tinged pop. During the sessions, the brothers spent nights in a nearby soccer field piecing ideas together that would become their second LP.

Impose is currently streaming the entire LP along with a brief synopsis of the band’s sound. You can read the piece and stream the album here. For a quick snippet from the album, check out Earbuddy’s premiere of Ocean Hum, a stark and carefully worded account of a childhood beach trip built around a gradual musical crescendo stretching the length of the song.

Firework is available now courtesy of Yellow K Records.
