The band’s growing list of influences come from a variety of genres, but the atmosphere and emotion of post-rock and emo served as the common link that brought the members together. Drawing inspiration from bands such as American Football, Jimmy Eat World, Moneen, Moving Mountains, and Toe, New Design’s music features dynamic and atmospheric sonic landscapes accompanied by memorable vocal melodies.
Flashes of New Design’s signature sound were first heard in their debut EP Burn Out The Sky (2012). However it is the band’s first ever full-length album Far From Home (2015) (recorded and engineered by Kenny Bridges of Canadian band Moneen) that best represents their emotive live sound; the one that has been captivating fans at their live shows for years.
Teaming up with Sunday Drive Records for their most recent release Where I Need To Be (2019) (produced by Anton Delost), the band has no intention of slowing down. With a strong work ethic, great music, and a desire to be heard, New Design hope to find a place in the hearts of everyone willing to listen.
