An AMAZING new discovery is this Brooklyn based Synth/Post Punk trio! Since the group’s founding in 2010, Bootblacks' sound has been described as a balance of contradictions: both pensive and buoyant, referential and modern. Fitting, as the Bootblacks name is derived from novelist William Burroughs’ description of the dark underbelly of glitzy New York City. Vocalist and frontman Panther MacDonald lists an eclectic set of influences: Depeche Mode, New Order, Simple Minds, Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division, early U2, as well as the Beatles and David Bowie for lyrical inspiration. Bootblacks released their first EP, Narrowed, in the fall of 2012, recorded with Brian Scott Herman, after previously collaborating with Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds). Songwriters MacDonald and Gorman describe the collaboration with Sclavunos as a “life-changing” one that informs Bootblacks’ music to this day. Panther describes Veins, the newly-completed Bootblacks album, as the most recent step in the band’s evolution from punk to post-punk. Fans can expect a more textured, atmospheric and “bigger-sounding” Bootblacks than before. Bootblack are currently touring Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia…)

BOOTBLACKS - Decoy (2016) Bootblacks "Veins" by Manic Depression Records MD060 - Bootblacks "veins" released March 11, 2016 VINYL LP version available: APRIL 2016 on Manic Depression Records https://manicdepressionrecords.bandcamp.com/album/md060-bootblacks-veins-free-download "The obvious comparisons for Bootblacks’ sound would be Joy Division and early New Order, as well as more recent bands influenced by the same, such as White Rose Movement, especially “Sub Rosa” above. They make good use of that cold, clear Interpol guitar sound, and MacDonald’s vocals can sound like The National’s Matt Berninger as well as Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode. The songs are consistently good and well-produced, varying between darkly cinematic and dance-y, and it’s hard for me to pick a favorite." thelosangelesbeat.com All Songs Bootblacks 2016 Recorded, Mixed and Masterd by Brian Scott Herman Treetfort Studio 2016
