Three piece indie electronic rock outfit New Diplomat have announced the imminent release of a brand new, six-song EP entitled Replaced, which will be out this Friday, 8/19.
The six-song EP was produced by uber-producer Jeff Saltzman, who is best known for his work with The Killers, Fischerspooner, Blondie and more. NEW DIPLOMAT’s individual musical influences, (The Killers, Muse, New Order, The Strokes) each lend a bit of unique flavor to the trio’s sound. NEW DIPLOMAT is: guitarist Paolo Von Giordano, vocalist/bassis Horacio O’Brien-Ferres and drummer/percussionist/synth player Jacob Hartog.
The six songs on the EP will appeal to a wide audience: yes, NEW DIPLOMAT’s music rocks …but you can also dance to it. Saltzman’s “Killers-esque” influence can be heard throughout the EP, as well as the band’s various musical influences, such as New Order, Muse and The Strokes. It’s quintessential 21st century new wave at its finest.
