NYC bands on the rise: Hey Anna plays Bowery Electric on 09.07

As the summer winds down, there’s nothing like a good, clean, catchy indie pop tune to drag you back into enjoying the last sun and fun of the season. That’s what Hey Anna does. Hailing from NJ and Brooklyn, the band released in May a very solid EP titled "Pompette". Their catchy hooks are delivered by soothing female vocals, while an upbeat, edgy electric sound keeps thing moving in unexpected ways. Check out the song titled “Dance Until Three” below - you can get it here through a name-your-price system, together with the other songs on the EP, all are equally solid - and see them live when they play Bowery Electric on September 7th.  – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)


NYC indie pop band on the rise: Hey Anna

If you enjoy what we call "rootsy pop," Hey Anna is the breath of fresh air you've been waiting all year to hear. Their new EP's five tracks keep the material humming along on boardwalks and ice cream stands and long afternoons, for your private, immaginary summer-during-the-winter-months. Exchanging vocals for the journey, the group's three singers (Anna, Katie and Erin Rauch-Sasseen) complement each other with an unabashed joy for all things fun: tracks like 'Love, Love Baby,' 'Tiny Kiss,' and 'Once Again' could have been arranged for The Jackson 5 had the band been around for your parents' generation. This is some fun stuff. So hop in the car, and take that sightseeing road trip you've been putting off. The soundtrack has finally arrived. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
