The New Respects Release Debut EP
Watch “Money” by The New Respects
March 10, 2017 (Nashville, TN) — Nashville’s The New Respects has released its debut EP, Here Comes Trouble, out today on Credential Recordings and distributed through Caroline Music. The EP is now available to stream and purchase at Spotify, iTunes, and all digital music outlets.
Okayplayer premiered the EP stating that, “…Here Comes Trouble is a warning call to the music industry that The New Respects not only demand your R-E-S-P-E-C-T, but your attention as well.”
The New Respects is a family affair, made up of three siblings, twins Alexis (bass) and Zandy Fitzgerald (guitar), along with their brother Darius (drums), and cousin Jasmine Mullen (vocals/guitar). The group is heavily influenced by the gospel music they were surrounded by growing up in Nashville, in addition to the sounds of artists like Aretha Franklin, Alabama Shakes, and John Mayer.
To achieve the soul/rock sound The New Respects was striving for on this debut, the band enlisted the help of Jeremy Lutito (Leagues) to produce Here Comes Trouble. Looking ahead, The New Respects will support Robert Randolph and the Family Band on a run of dates this March (see below).
Here Comes Trouble Press
“The way that Jasmine, the lead singer, springs off of the darting, furtively funky pattern laid down by guitarist Alexandria, bassist Alexis and drummer Darius in “Money,” a track that debuted last month and also appears on a five-song EP due in March, captures the foursome’s musical interplay.” — Jewly Hight for NPR Music (World Cafe)
“Nashville’s The New Respects aren’t here for your pettiness and negativity. On their new single, “Trouble,” they quite literally tell it (trouble) to go ahead and get gone. And, when set to an anthemic gospel chorus, you best be believing trouble is left shaken and stirred.” — Hayden Manders for NYLON Magazine
“As soon the chorus hits, the [‘Money’] video sheds its stern façade and bends to the will of The New Respects’ signature blend of rock and soul music.” — Tahnsarah Peters for Interview Magazine
