The Sanctuaries are a band from New York City who formed in 2010. Merging the jangly guitars of both the 60s and 90s via classic Rickenbacker style, the quartet pumps out memorable, upbeat pop songs. Currently hard at work on the followup to their full length debut, they’re keeping fans happy with an EP that includes remixes of their earlier work, as well as a unique series of “cooking with mom” music videos. Keeping things on topic, the band played some of those tunes and sat down with Maia to talk nicknames, moms, and NJ basements.
Featured song: “Judgin’ You Is Easy”
Not Guilty, a collection of new songs and remixes from The Sanctuaries’ debut album, Annette, is available now.
