Seattle’s New Age Healers announce the release of their first new music since 2020’s pandemic inspired collaboration “In Dreams,” that featured members of Sacramento’s Soft Science, and Seattle’s Jupe Jupe and Black Nite Crash. “Don’t Let Me Go,” leads off a yet unnamed full-length out summer 2022. Recorded by Matt Brown at Avast Studios and Crackle & Pop in Seattle, the song is described by the band as “a bombastic tornado of shoegaze.” Songwriter Owen Murphy jokes “it’s about the disintegration of friendships in a period of great change. Keep your friends close, until they become your enemies. Then keep them closer.” 

New Age Healers is a Seattle based shoegaze/psych-rock project featuring vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Owen Murphy, guitarist Jeramy Koepping (Voyager One, Grand Hallway), drummer Adam LeVasseur (Feed), bassist Allen Murray (Modern Athletics) and keyboardist Farkhad Saidmuratov (Kotlovan). NAH has three full length releases, 2016’s Ghosts which NPR’s Jim DeRogatis called “wonderfully dark, hypnotic shoegaze,” 2017’s Where the Tragic Happens which The Strangers’ Dave Segal described as having “slyly catchy melodies and occasional anthemic flourishes.” In 2019 the band released Debris engineered by Barrett Jones (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, etc.) which garnered airplay around the globe and most significantly here in Seattle on KEXP where they have been played over 170 times and have also been lucky enough to do a live in-studio session on the Midday Show with Cheryl Waters.
