I feel like the word “navy” has been popping up in indie rock over the past few years – nowhere near as ubiquitous as “bear,” “deer,” or “crystal,” but noticeable nonetheless.

First it was just songs:

AgesandAges “Navy Parade”

Camera Obscura “French Navy”

White Rabbits “Navy Wives”

The Hold Steady “Navy Sheets”

Plus the Los Angeles band, Army Navy.  Now there seems to be a new “navy” out there called…New Navy.  These Aussie dudes have been getting attention across the pond(s) from both NME and Triple J.

New Navy “Zimbabwe”

File Under: indie, pop, Tanlines, Two Door Cinema Club, Australia, sunny, quirky percussion, vacation, escape, travel
