New York City's The Ropes are creating quite a buzz with their brand of indie rock. Although they have a style all of their own, the will remind you - in a good way of past bands that built their name in the Big Apple.
For example, WhoNeedsRadio.com says "I remember how I felt the first time I heard Garbage back in '95 on a CMJ compilation. I got that same feeling after giving New York's The Ropes a first listen. The Blondie influence is just as apparent here, and Sharon Shy's vocals are similar in that tauntingly sexy kind of way."
The Ropes also recently earned a rotation as a MySpace feature artist and sold out the first pressing of their EP. You can catch the Ropes live tonight, Thursday, August 10th, at Sin-E in NYC as part of Earvolution's Summer Jam 2006. A few tickets remain and are available here.
