New Manhattan are a funk-pop six-piece based in West London and Manchester. We make outrageously danceable disco- and funk-infused songs packed with earworm hooks and bulletproof grooves. We combine catchy, focused song-craft with a passion for sonic experimentation and a love of the absurd, taking cues from David Bowie, Prince, Parliament-Funkadelic and Talking Heads. Our music is joyful and exuberant, our lyrics promote self-respect and inclusiveness, and we dress in androgynous, out-there clothing, inviting the audience to embrace the surreal and express themselves. Our wildly energetic, well-honed stage show never fails to get an audience dancing, and over the last year we’ve played to packed small venues in London, Manchester and New York City.
