London-based indie rockers Special Needs played their first American show ever at New York’s Bowery Electric on Saturday, September 3rd. The band reformed earlier this year following a roughly five-year hiatus, during which their debut album, Funfairs & Heartbreak, was posthumously released. Led by frontman Zachery Stephenson, they seemed particularly assured of their way forward, playing both old and new songs with ease. To-be-released songs such as "Stuck in Human Resources" and the country-inspired "I’m Still the Man" fit in easily alongside harmony-heavy fan favorites, including "Sylvia" and "Gloucester Road". Special Needs don’t have any upcoming shows in the near future, but the fresh material promises more to come from the band.
