New Yesterday is a musical group which specialises in Dance music, primarily featuring Electronica and Alt-Rock with some Latin influences.
They have three officially released singles, but only one has been broadcast worldwide - in the form of a video on YouTube
. This single is the first to not include any Latin-inspired segments but, rather, repetition of a dance break from their first single, which claim to make it "a good mix track for DJs"
. Also, the single has added water-drips, moving ladders, and a toy robot in the background to add to the Alt-Rock effect.
On a later YouTube
upload, they revealed that they had gained a singer, who is British.
Tropes that apply to this musical group:
- All in the Eyes: Artwork for Shift is a concept eye.
- Anonymous Band: Simply all we know is they're American, with (apparently) some Latino heritage and a British singer. That's it.
- Anything Can Be Music
- But Not Too Foreign: Central-North American with a bit of Latin Spice and a Brit thrown in for good measure.
- Concept Album: Averted, fans wish they could.
- Cover Version: One, sung a cappella by friends of their singer. It was "I Write Sins Not Tragedies", and is on YouTube somewhere.
- Everything Is an Instrument: A toy robot and a step ladder were used for Shift, along with a computer.
- Fake-Out Fade-Out
- Full-Name Basis: No individuals' names are known, they all go by 'New Yesterday'.
- Genre Shift: Ditching the Latin with the main single didn't suit them. Not even a bit.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: When asked about the change to Alt-Rock for Shift the response was "No, it's Shift-Rock! Like on a keyboard. And we used a computer, too."
- Industrial: Most likely of the danceable kind, but there's a fair amount of synthesising, too.
- Instrumentals: Well, there aren't any words.
- Looped Lyrics: Technically looped music, in the case of Shift most notably - and this itself comes from Song No. 1.
- Luke Nounverber: Not Adjective Noun Fred, because they are Adjective Noun... New Yesterday.
- Minimalistic Cover Art
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly
- New Sound Single: They Shifted.
- Noisy Robots
- Non-Appearing Title: They're a big fan. None of their songs have any lyrics at all, though (unless you count that one time they recorded a cover Just for Fun).
- Oop North: Where their singer is from, and you can tell from the way syllables are shortened. As such, the group's name isn't all that long for her at all.
- Prophetic Name: Even with Time Travel, hopefully not as that could cause a Temporal Paradox.
- Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll: Averted, there's rock and roll but the group are perfectly clean.
- Song Style Shift
- Squat's In A Name: Although Song No. 1 was the first song, the group's name was just made up and sounded catchy.
- Stop and Go
- Textless Album Cover: Averted. To say the songs are wordless, this could well have been expected. Not so fast, because the cover art for their singles features one lovely abstract image with the song's title and 'New Yesterday' emblazoned on top.
- Tick Tock Tune: Shift.
- Trash Can Band: What sounds like it was pulled from a kitchen used in all songs.
