New Black Shades are an alternate 90’s influenced pop/rock Band from Newcastle
on the east coast of Australia. Growing up in the small surf town of Redhead in the
90’s, the boys have always had riffs running through their blood with the ocean
swirling in their minds and have been writing purposeful groovy music since early
The Shades sound is heavily influenced by alternate rock bands from the 1990’s
and early 2000’s with phat groovy drum beats, funky bass lines, high energy riffs,
melodic powerful vocals and memorable catchy hooks.
New Black Shades have created their own unique style of rock which encapsulates
everything they are about and represents where they are from. The production of all
their material is top shelf and the use of 3 part vocal harmonies has become one of
the trademarks of the band.

mixtures to the recipe which spawn depth and vastness to the songs with use of

culminating in an overall truly distinctive and nostalgic sound which is New Black
