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
