This Week in New York Insider's Guide to Arts & Culture in New York City Since 2001



Swiss rockers We Loyal will be playing five shows in nine nights on first New York City visit

Multiple venues
Monday, February 7, through Tuesday, February 15

“Now we rush through the country / Our humming lips in a choir / We will lead across the land / With your hopes laid in our hand,” We Loyal declare on “Declare.” Not to be confused with Tokyo-based duo the Loyal We or Dubai hip-hoppers We Loyal Die Snitchen, the three-piece Basel-based We Loyal will be rushing through their first New York City visit this month with five gigs in nine days in support of their debut EP, 2010’s OBSTACLES. Produced by David Berger and Manuel Bürkli, the five-song disc features catchy Euro synth pop reminiscent of Interpol and Hypernova on such songs as “One Youth” and “Distant Heart.” Lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist Sandro Simon, bassist Ben Kuster, and drummer Fabian Trümpy, who all contribute synths as well, will be at the Trash Bar on Monday with Empty Chairs, Sunspots, and the Go Round ($7), Tuesday at Lit Lounge with Lohio and Donora ($6), Wednesday at Goodbye Blue Monday with Instinct Control, Delicate Sen, Lost Trail, and Meaghan Burke, Thursday at Fontana’s with Secret Country and Beneficial Tomatoes ($7), and the following Tuesday at Cameo Gallery with Chica Vas, Nihiti, and Hard Nips.
