about

“Wonderfully dark, hypnotic shoegaze from New Age Healers: The perfect soundtrack for the age of digital paranoia.”
-Jim DeRogatis, Sound Opinions, WBEZ

“The concept is brilliant.”
-Primal Music Blog

`There is a great deal of New Wave synth and Echo and the Bunnymen mating with the Psychedelic Furs and Love and Rockets, particularly on “Have Some Fun (the Fall has Begun)” and the closing “Hey Hey Hey, Yeah Yeah Song” but “Shadows vs. Los Angeles” features a thicker, more bombastic bass riff that injects some punk angst in this concoction. Impactful through profound subtlety and overflowing with intellectual darkness, this one is required listening.'
-Rich Quinlan, Jersey Beat

“His playing style and vision is not compromised.”
-Optical Sounds

`Building beautiful, luscious layers of driving guitars, synth washes and pulsing drums, his music bridges the styles of gothic rock, pop, new wave and post-punk. Gorgeous melodies are paired with lyrics of longing, making his latest release both exhilarating and heart-rendering.'
-Strawberry Tongue Radio & Music Magazine

`New Age Healers ... (toe) ... an intriguing line between pursuing a punk-ish grab for cheap thrills and a post-punk isolation ... (The album “Ghosts”) boast piles of neat-o guitar work and a stack of cool chorus’ that warrant a place on the radar.'
-Colour Horizon

'"Ghosts" from New Age Healers feels like a glorious throwback to 80's chill-synth-goth rock, without sounding dated. I really like it!'
-Blow Up Radio

`This is also a really good and polished album. It reminds me a great deal of Jesus and Mary Chain, but they assured me J&MC were not a big influence...'
-On Pirate Satellite

`...a mix of shoegaze, and energetic post-punk, full of weight and at the same time highly cantarolável (translated: catchy, melodic).''
-The Blog That Celebrates Itself

Track Name: Lost Your Mind
I may be out of touch
Maybe out of time
But how do you know when
You've lost my mind

You may be out of touch
Or maybe out of time
But how will you know when
You've lost your mind

It could be in the kitchen
It could be when you die
It could be on an airplane
when you're learning to fly

You've lost your mimd
Track Name: Ready, Fire, Aim
What a sham
What a liar
Pick sides
well that backfired
Bone dry camouflage
Some rummy yelled "hey, it's a mirage."
Hold me close, while we conspire
The one you turn, ducks the crossfire

What a dummy
Rolling the dice
Ready, fire, aim and pay the price

What a dummy
an ultra-maroon
ready, fire, aim
now pop the balloon
Track Name: Ghosts
She
She slipped away
Cold sun, fights with the grey
We ran
Her dossier
Her ghosts
Gave her away

And I'll wish you good day
Wish you good day

She
She slipped away
Rumors
Led us astray
Our dance
a drunken ballet
My ghosts
Gave me away

And I'll wish you good day
Wish you good day
Track Name: Snow Angels
Hey
It's snowing outside
Hey
It's quiet outside
Hey
It's perfect outside
Hey
I'm boiling inside

The snow, the dark, the park
The people you don't see
The houses, so warm
and everything is sweet, and cold, and quiet
and everything we see
Is white and lovely
It's snowing outside

Hey
It's snowing outside
Hey
It's snowing outside

Your love, your dreams, the snow
the people you don't see
The stars, no clouds and everything is sweet
and quiet and blue
we're running in the street
and slipping in the snow
Oh baby, I'm dying inside
Track Name: I Want More
I
love dancing
with you
One, two, three, four
I want more

I love screwing
I love screwing with you
Track Name: Have Some Fun (The Fall Has Begun)
Do you want to come over
Do you want to have some fun
Summer's over my love
And now the fall has begun

I wish you'd come over
I think we could have some fun
Summer's over my love
And now the fall has begun

I think we could have some fun
Track Name: Shadows vs. Los Angeles
They want to check in from master control
it's the same stupid answers that they already know
it's now the time where we assess blame
It's now the time for us to take names

There's No Safety with a drink
There's No Safety, not what you think
Surrender

Shadows
Will surrender
To nightfall
Track Name: A Song Called Screwing
Another shot at redemption
Until you dig in the till
Then you scurry like a rabbit
to get your fill

Only Dena knew, what he was doing
Only she knew
who he was screwing

Another shot at redemption
If you can fill the sack
a shot at forgiveness
if you can put it all back

Only Dena knew, what he was doing
Only she knew
who he was screwing
Track Name: There's No Tomorrow
He keeps remembering
That there's no tomorrow
It just occurred to him
That there's now tomorrow
There's just today

She's slowly sinking in
There's no tomorrow
It's slowly sinking in
There's no tomorrow

There's just today
Track Name: Hey Hey Hey, Yeah Yeah Song
She was a crumbling bunny from Illinois...
