New Saxons E.P. 2009
In With The New Saxons E.P. 2010



New Saxons, much like the old ones, are an invading force from a small cold climate state excepting where the old ones brought kite shields and button up pants, these ones bring clean rocking Stratocasters and zip up shoes.

It is true, Tim Green, the front man and Mr Everything does wear tighty whiteys and changes them after a show, but don’t let that put you off. Tim’s penchant for rockin indie pop far exceeds even his vest collection into the realm of, ‘fuck I must have heard that before’, and, ‘get that damn song out of my head’.

The rest of the band members have questionable underwear choices too, Liam on the skins opts for tighty whiteys too but as becomes immediately apparent, they have a slightly bigger cod-piece and he doesn’t change them as frequently. Locky on keys may seem a bit bashful on first impressions but when it gets to pants off time there aren’t many people who can pull off leopard print with such aplomb. Charles on bass is more of a bonds man but he pulls them up really high when he plays so that’s ok.

The Saxons are new, and sounding a little Lemon Headsy, a little Vampire Weekendy and a little Vinesy, they released a preliminary EP at the end of 2008 funded by Arts Tas who saw their genius even then. Since then, teamed up with their new manager Dane Hunnerup and working with producer Chris Townend and having formed a whole new band (see above), people’s Ray Bans have started to fog up. With a brand spanking EP in hand, ‘In With the New Saxons’ – dropping in early 2010 but with a 3 track teaser slipping under doorways near you and having recently supported Kram, Sparkadia, The Jezebels, Dukes of Windsor and played main stage at MS Fest, New Saxons are coming to pillage near you, but at least you know they’ve got clean undies now.
