released July 29, 2014

New God's second full length LP. Conceived and recorded in an abandoned racquetball court.

PRESS for Firework:

"Simple summer pleasures....” - NPR

"Recorded in an abandoned racquetball court that only serves to blanket their beautifully intricate pop with a feeling of space, “Firework” is surrounded by a natural reverb that allows everything to sound gorgeously smudged at the edges." - The Line Of Best Fit

"New God‘s Firework might just be the pinnacle of 2014 pop." - Surviving The Golden Age

“The album's loose feel—combined with the serious musicality and unorthodox instrumentation...creates a serendipitous sense of joy and discovery.” - iTunes (Official Editors review)

"New God Is Definitely the Beach Boys on Acid....this is an album that steadily grows on you, and, at times, it matches the sun-kissed pop of Caribou. Part of the appeal comes from the fact that this album was recorded on a racquetball court, which is even referenced in final song “Dumb”, giving the record an expansive feel." - PopMatters

"Like witnessing your favorite Fourth of July pyrotechnic light show in real time slow motion." - Impose Magazine
