"New Average is a musical pop duo formed in 2009 by John New and Emma Average. The couple dreamed of making great music like they did in the 60’s and 70’s....
New Average restores my faith in music and the people that make it independently of fat cats at the big labels with their commercial strategies and their knack for making millions of dollars with people that have absolutely no talent. As they saying goes, money talks and - well, you fill in the blanks. Here is the difference; these people have natural talent and are making music for the fun of it without any expectations. That attitude shows and the music becomes a byproduct of those strong and true feelings. The only expectation that should be placed on this is that you will hear some great music that is hard to resist." - Keith Hannaleck/USA

"If you secretly feel like you would’ve thrived in the musical era of Blondie and you’ve been looking for the sort of '60s and '70s pop rock sound that seems to have died out these days, rest assured, the New Average EP can provide some respite from the musical drought you may be experiencing.
Waiting Time, the group's 4-song EP is reminiscent of Blondie’s Parrallel Lines with just a touch of pop rock for a dash of modernity. This EP will take you back a few decades while leaving one of your feet firmly planted in 2011 so you can find your way back after listening.
The music is a bit too busy and the singer's voice too unique for this EP to really pass as background music, but if you’re looking for something to really listen to, this EP is a great place to start.
You might also want to get your “groovy” on as soon as the first song starts playing, so if you’re too shy to shake your tush in public, I suggest listening in private."
