“Want To Be ”is the latest track from New York rock-and-roll trio The Britanys. Their first release since the It’s Alright EP, the track shows a clear sonic progression for the band: it’s a little less lo-fi than their earlier music and a little more put-together, but loses none of the raw, noisy guitar-rock sound that has become the band’s trademark. Although the group’s only played shows around the New York circuit for a few years, it’s easy to hear influences from the city’s history in their songs—they cite The Strokes, Ramones, and Iggy Pop as influences.
Catch The Britanys live opening for No Shoes at Rare Candy’s Existential Breakfast Showcase on February 28. More details for that event can be found on the poster to the right. RSVPs are required in advance; contact information can be found on the event page.
More of the band's music can be found on their Bandcamp.
