New Black Shades - Summer Days
Music we're digging
The New Black Shades are a five member rock group who hail from Newcastle, Australia. They have a coastal funk feel with a dash of psychedelic rock, reggae and hip hop.
Formed in early 2012, the band takes its name from a ubiquitous piece of kit you just gotta have when you're out having fun down by the water. "A nice pair of black sunnies is an essential part of everyone’s outfit on a sunny day... Take a look around, everyone has got some." - (Rick shades, New Black Shades)
The band comprises: Rick Shades - Lead Vocals/Guitar, Smoke Shades - Vocals/Guitar/Keys, Lewy Spink - Bass, Staunch Cat - Lead Guitar and Bellzy on Drums/Percussion/Vocals.
Their first album New Black Shades, was released in 2015 and they are currently touring. Dates can be found on the New Black Shades Facebook site.
