Miami group Awesome New Republic has been knocking about for a few years, and their slated to release a new album called Hearts on Honor Roll Music on 10.27. The band counts Passion Pit, Neon Indian, and Of Montreal among their musical contemporaries. Musically, they fall in somewhere between '60s psychedelia and '80s new wave. Their hometown may often look to other genres of music for inspiration, but these guys are proving that exciting indie rock can flourish anywhere.
