ANR Release Free MP3 for Brand New Track, "New Armor"
This morning, Miami’s psychedelic synth-pop duo ANR released the brand new track “New Armor.” The song is the latest example of the group’s constant evolution as well as their prolific songwriting. It begins with a lone acoustic guitar before falsetto vocals and lush, sparkling keyboards join the mix. ANR’s reverb-laden vocals are anthemic and continue in the introspective, earnest direction of the previously released tracks from Stay Kids Deluxe Edition, their forthcoming album out September 13th on 10k Islands.
ANR consists of merely two members – Brian Robertson (Keys, Vocals) and Michael-John Hanock (Vocals, Drums) – but they create a powerful sound filled with layered melodies and bountiful hooks. It has already earned the duo praise from RCRD LBL, The Fader, MTV.com, and Nylon, among others, and have landed them shows with bands like Animal Collective, Neon Indian, No Age, and Fucked Up. The band kicks off their North American tour later this month.
