NYC artists on the rise: The Immaculates

NYC artists on the rise: The Immaculates

There are a lot of stories floating around New York. But with so much emphasis on sculpting obtuse dreamscape imagery and lyrical hieroglyphs in music these days, it can be easy to forget the power that rock can have when it comes to just telling a good story, without all the fuss. Three piece The Immaculates is bringing back the form in a big way.

In a strange way, this band reminds me of James Murphy more than perhaps any other artist working right now. And I'm not just referring to their penchant for old-school rock jams fit for bootyshaking either. Perhaps I'm just waxing nostalgic, but I miss the role of the NYC storyteller relating his experiences for the rest of us, supplicated on a clean and simple texture. We don't have enough of these artists these days, and The Immaculates make up for this deficit with songs ranging from how they spent their christmas, to how their friends are spending their Spring.

For the band, New York is full of engaging characters and drama, and it's refreshing to hear them build solid basslines and rolling drumlines around these landmarks.- Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
