overlord: Keep It from the Baby
Brooklyn, NY indie-pop band overlord is proud to present a new album, In Soviet Russia, My Heart Breaks You” (released 1st April.
“The misleadingly-named group draws inspiration from ’60s British Invasion, ’70s Bubblegum, ’80s New Wave, and ’90s self-involvement.
In the past, songwriter George Pasles recorded overlord albums on his own, recruiting members of A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Longwave, and Ui for live shows.
Now, for the first time, the studio and live bands are the same: vocalist/guitarist Pasles, bassist Sarah Brockett (Palomar), synthesizer player Tris McCall (My Teenage Stride), and drummer Matt Houser (The Human Hearts).
While writing this album, overlord has played with the Dodos, Frightened Rabbit, the Wrens, Shilpa Ray, and, inexplicably, Robert Plant’s son.
We are your overlord, indeed.” [Bio]
