NewVillager is band and art project founded by Ross Simonini and Ben Bromley. In 2011, they released their debut, self-titled album on IAMSOUND records and toured internationally. They have performed and built installations in museums, galleries, and concert halls, including Jack Hanley Gallery, Human Resources, Brooklyn Museum, and the Andy Warhol Museum. All of their music, drawings, collages, videos and installations are made using the monomyth, a narrative pattern found in ancient and contemporary mythologies.
