Houston Calling

Free Press Summer Festival preview: New York City Queens

May 19th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Houston New York City Queens is a band from which I continually look for exciting new things. Their music, especially the song “Roman Candles,” always makes me do a double take when it comes on. The band’s 2012 album, Burn Out Like Roman Candles, is full of lush, catchy songs that bring to mind early Coldplay and mid-period Radiohead, and that are intricate enough to make you stop and actually listen.

Here’s a video of the band performing “Roman Candles” live:

You can read more about the band in a recent Houstonia magazine article.

Watch the official video for “Waited For You”:

New York City Queens plays at Free Press Summer Fest on Sunday, June 1st, at 11:30am on the Neptune stage.

More information may be found on Facebook. Buy the band’s music on Bandcamp.
