Seattle’s The Not-Its! ask a simple question with the title of their new record: Are You Listening?
If you’re not, you should be.
After a rare 2 year break between records, The Not-Its! are back with a vengeance, full of absurdly catchy pop-punk grooves. Despite an incredible burst of creative energy – releasing their 6th record in 7 years(!) – The Not-Its are not short on ideas. The band’s sharp and witty lyrics with strong vocals by lead singers Sarah Shannon (Velocity Girl) and Danny Adamson are on full display with Are You Listening? Songs like “Grandad is a Spy” “Don’t Fear The Dentist” and “Traffic Jam” (which channels Rocket From The Crypt) are just a blast of energy.
Popdose is proud to premiere the video for the first single, “Dance With Me”. The multi-plane video was directed by Chris Looney (who provides insight on the creation process)
Are You Listening? will be released on February 19th and is available for pre-order from Amazon or straight from the band. Starting February 3rd you can pre-order the album on iTunes.
If you happen to live in NYC or Seattle, the band has upcoming shows:
Symphony Space in NYC on Saturday, January 23rd.
The Vera Project in Seattle on Sunday, February 21.
