NEW CANDYS (Fuzz Club Records)
Venice, Italy based alternative rock band New Candys announce their first Australian Tour. It will take place after their fourth European tour and before their first US Tour. New Candys formed in 2008 and gained buzz through playing European festivals like The Secret Garden Party 2015 and Liverpool Psych Fest 2016. They recently landed some major syncs for their songs "Aphrodite In Leather", "Excess" and "Bleeding Magenta" on episodes of Showtime's hit show Shameless. Their influences have roots in The Velvet Underground and Syd Barrett. After a self-produced EP, in 2012 they released the album “Stars Reach The Abyss” on Foolica, a UK tour followed. In 2015 they took part in “The Reverb Conspiracy”, compilation curated by Fuzz Club/The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). Later that year “New Candys As Medicine”, album mixed by John Wills (producer and drummer of Loop), has been released on both Picture In My Ear/Fuzz Club and added to The Committee To Keep Music Evil catalogue, receiving praises from Simone Marie Butler of Primal Scream and Stephen Lawrie of The Telescopes. New Candys produced their latest record "Bleeding Magenta" by themselves, mastered by Grammy Award winner Giovanni Versari, released on Fuzz Club in October 2017. New Candys have shared the stage with rock notables like The Warlocks, Dead Skeletons, The Vaccines, Slowdive, Savages and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion among others.
"Mixing brooding psychedelia with post-punk stylings, the record captures the full intensity of their live show with devastating results." - Drowned In Sound
"New Candys sound like something between The Stooges and The Jesus And Mary Chain. Super wild and super cool." - Primal Scream’s Simone Marie Butler
"Sounding like a mix of Tame Impala and Temples if they were to cross over to the dark side." - Orange Amplification
"The insistence of Oasis meets the mystical early Pink Floyd." - Jon Astley
