June 21, 2013- “One of the best live shows in town” (The Deli NYC), Appomattox bring the distorted pop sound they refined on new EP 3Against2 to The Rock Shop on July 19. The show will serve as a release show for the new EP, out July 23rd, which melds sharp, undeniable hooks with complex, bouncy rhythms, an angular crunch and a new focus on vocal harmonies. Urgency runs through 3Against2, giving each track a propulsion and energy that begs for repeated listens and makes Appomattox a fierce live act.
Listen to the 3Against2 standout “Radiator” here:
WHEN: Friday, July 19 at 11pm
WHERE: The Rock Shop, 249 4th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11215

Appomattox is made up of Nick Gaynier (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dave Nurmi (bass, vocals) and James Mello (drums, vocals). With the 3/2 clave pattern – typically used in Afro-Cuban music - at the base of all the songs on the 3Against2, the band create a distinctive sound by mixing in distorted keys, a lockstep rhythm section, inescapable hooks and two and three-part vocal harmonies. Recording most of the EP in a less time-sensitive recording environment with engineer Ryan Steele (except for “Radiator” which was recorded with Josh Ascalon at RAD Studios), the band was able to focus on the huge vocal sounds that were in Gaynier’s head, owing a debt to artists like The Beatles, Queen, ELO and Marvin Gaye.
