Electronic Alternative Rock band New Diplomat manages a sound that is both fresh and familiar. Hailing from all over the world (Belgium, Italy, U.S, Argentina and Uruguay) and uniting in San Francisco, CA they crafted an EP evocative of the accessibility of The Killers with the creativity of Radiohead or Muse.
The debut “Buy Yourself Some Freedom” has already landed them sold out shows, festival appearances such as Noise Pop 2012, SXSW 2012 and BFD 2012 as well as a single produced by Dan the Automator (Gorillaz, Kasabian).
With only a year together under their belts, dawn is just breaking for this Bay Area five-piece.
"One hundred days" was the commitment made after four twenty-somethings met in the San Francisco in 2005. And, for 100 days the four young musicians - that would later name their band by the same name - spent night and day locked in the same house discovering and perfecting their sound into what has become a collection of critically-acclaimed indie-rock gems that are as catchy as they are clever and sonically arresting.
With driving rhythms, soaring guitars, textural keyboards and powerful vocal melodies, The Hundred Days push indie/alt. rock in new directions. Drawing from a variety of influences (post punk, alternative, britpop), the band’s familiar yet intrinsically unique sound has been compared to The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen and Radiohead as well as contemporary rockers Franz Ferdinand, The Bravery and The Killers. A moody, dynamic indie rock band, The Hundred Days showcase tight musicianship complemented by razor-sharp pop writing capabilities with both sophistication and urgency. The band always hit the right notes, but still keep you guessing.
