Tour name: Fast Years ‘Women EP’ @ Pianos NYC - Aug 24

Brooklyn five-piece Fast Year are playing at Pianos an interesting bi-level venue opened in an old piano shop in New York on Friday the 24th of August.

Fast Years plays a mix of 80's Punk, Surf Pop, and Indie Garage, with influences ranging from The Sonics to The Exploding Hearts to The Vaccines.

Their first ever live show in January to a packed house alongside the white-hot Howler in Brooklyn, crept into the Hype Machine's Top 15 Most Popular Tracks list, was featured on Amazing Radio UK and Q Radio's New to Q program, played the Burning Ear's SXSW showcase, as well as picking up the following praise:

"The track goes near polar-throwback in it's tendencies towards nostalgic Garage and Pop. Especially for those letting a renaissance of bands like The Vaccines still sink in" – Blah Blah Blah Science

"sufficient bark to their garage stomp to merit a listen" – NME Radar Tip Of The Day

"Young Heart is a mile-a-minute, hook-a-plenty, good time jam that's got us hot under the collar just now." – Laissez Faire Club

"along the lines of Japandroids meets The Stroked meets The Vaccines – which we might broadly describe as a brilliant lo-fi sound...No doubt they will be here, there and everything sooner rather than later, but with tunes like these we're sure as shit not complaining about it." - Killing Moon
