New York City Queens (NYCQ) is a Houston based indie Pop/Rock quintet formed in the spring of 2011 around their debut album, 'Somewhere Different, Something New', which was very well received. Their sophomore effort, 'Burn Out Like Roman Candles', was released in the fall of 2012 to critical acclaim, earning them a spot on several local "Best of 2012" lists, including the number 1 spot on the Houston Chronicle's list of "Best Local Music of 2012".
Blending influences that range from early pop to contemporary modern rock, NYCQ has solidified a signature sound which has not only garnered critical praise, but also earned them a sync license with Hyundai for a recent ad campaign.
In the past two years, NYCQ has performed with the finest bands in Texas and around the country. They have toured both coasts and the southeastern United States and played major music festivals such as CMJ Music Marathon and Houston's Free Press Summer Fest. NYCQ is currently recording a new album to be released in 2014.
