NY IN 64 unites current and former members of New Jersey bands, You and I, The Assistant, Capacities, East Of The Wall, The Postman Syndrome, Argonauts, El Drugstore, This Ship Will Sink, Black Kites, and others, the band founded by Justin Hock and Thomas Schlatter, who were both part of cult ’90s screamo band, You And I. After taking a fifteen-year hiatus from writing music together, the two began laying down the framework for this new outfit, recruiting Chris Alfano and Seth Rheam, both veterans of many acts, most notably current members of East Of The Wall. Barren of vocals, the band’s music seamlessly melds the vibrant, youthful vigor of punk and hardcore with challenging and provoking elements of progressive and post-rock, injecting the energy and enthusiasm of a basement show into a more refined musical composition.
