This Manchester based band have already made a name for themselves performing at the likes of Night and Day Cafe after their debut gig at the Kanteena. With their new single ‘Peace Of Mind’ they’re sure to become unforgettable members of the Manchester music scene.
The song is easily defined by the dominant guitar riffs which are lifted by probing lyrics and ultimately brought to life by lead vocalist Matty McCallum. As a debut single this song showcases each members individual talented whether that be songwriter and lead guitarist Eoin Harkin, Jacob Jones (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), Connor Doyle (bass guitar) and Jake Byrne (drums).
Harkin said “The song is about not being able to give reassurances..maybe being a bit too jaded to give that to someone during that time with them or even after the fact.. Musically, the song has a slower tempo than other songs that we have up our sleeves, with a vibe and sound that lends itself to the 90’s”.
This tone of detachment runs throughout the song and is amplified by the aggressive yet powerful drum beat and lyrics that promise not to lend too much of one’s own mind to another. This bitter tone will resonate with those that have shared similar situations in which one is so hurt and resentful that they refuse to offer a helpful opinion, the contradiction of guilt and power that comes with this position.
See them in action at their upcoming gig supporting The RAH’s with the Panamas. More information available here.
