INTERVIEW: NEW NAVY

nn

With their headlining Heaven tour having just kicked off on November 8th, New Navy are set to bring their ambient, indie rock party vibes to the nation, and with it being their biggest tour to date coming off the back of a tour with Andy Bull, “next-generation New Navy” are excited to get their new songs out there.

A fresh approach was taken into writing the new material with vocalist Luke O’Loughlin being added to the mix, using layering and multiple instruments to create an interesting and diverse album.

“We all play multiple instruments on the record and the three of us go a bit crazy [with layering] and that’s what has made the songs into the beasts that they are.”

Fresh material on hand and a genuine love for music, fans can expect quite the party vibe from New Navy with “more activity onstage”.

“We’re a bit of what we like to call ourselves ‘Circus Charlies’,  juggling three different instruments to try and get across all of the ridiculous layering  [we’ve done]”,  Luke says of the band.

While New Navy as we’ve previously known them still exist, it can be seen from their new single, Heaven, that the band  has taken a step in a new direction.

Heaven is the most different thing we’ve done. It’s different but I like it.”

“While there are songs indicative of that party vibe on the album, Heaven has that slower tempo. We have grown up since the last EP and we put this one out first to let people know we’re taking stock of things and trying something different.”

With Luke calling it “the dream” to be able to get out there with friends and play music every night, fans can expect to be part of nothing less than a celebration of unique, original music.
