“Charlottesville’s favorite power pop collective New Boss is a sun drenched romp through psychedelic vocals, chorused guitars, and a beat that just won’t quit.” ~Seth Casana, Whurk Magazine

“Listening to New Boss is like sending your brain to the beach. Their lo-fi approach is well-executed and carries their sound perfectly, with the right amount of twang and dance beats provided by premium drumming. The melodies are easy to lose oneself in, but they’re hard to leave behind. If you like Yo La Tengo or Belle & Sebastian, you’ll love New Boss.” ~Jonathan Goodwin, The Deli DC

“The high-brow pop and glam moves are on full blast…chord heavy songs with huge guitar riffs, keyboard hooks and intricate vocal arrangements stay just on the rocking side of baroque.” ~The Modern Folk Music of America

Please make sure to tune in and donate generously to the WTJU Rock Marathon April 15-21!
