The Economy is a three piece rock band from Brooklyn, New York. The Economy was formed in 2004 by John Davis on vocals and bass, Aaron Nevezie on guitar, and David Mason on drums. The band was a natural progression from the projects the members had been involved with together and as roommates sharing a basement rehearsal space/studio in Williamsburg, the music quickly took shape.
The Economy draws inspiration from Bowie, Gang of Four, Blur, Supergrass, Eno, Boards of Canada, Doves, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop and many other sources.
The five song debut EP was recorded by the band over the spring of 2004. It features a tightly intergrated group of songs showcasing the band's strong songwriting and performances.
