This Manchester 4 piece have been making great waves over the past year, playing gigs around the UK and unleashing their own brand of infectious electro indie rock that has seen word of mouth spread like wild fire over the past year. The band take influence from acts such as Delphic, Kings of Leon, The Stone Roses, Foals and Awolnation to name a handful, and with Adam Redmond’s unique vocal style combined with a band oozing with solid pop hooks and catchy melodies, The Relays possess a sound that many will find hard not to sit up and take notice.
Both tracks offer much variety.
‘South Pacific’ is a brilliant feel good indie rock anthem that can do little else but get you in the mood for the summer. Full to the brim with melodies, harmonies, great sounding guitars and soaring vocals. We won’t be surprised if this catches on fast. “(Like A) Satellite” delves into the band’s electro indie pop side and delivers a huge chorus, which you’ll find running around your head for days.
The Relays are set to tour and promote the release of this single in over the coming months with a plentiful schedule of releases planned throughout 2014. Be sure to keep up to date on the band’s website and social networks. The Relays are fast shaping up to be one of the Uk’s newest and exciting bands. Expect a busy 2014 for The Relays. www.therelays.net/gigs
A bit more about The Relays…
The Relays are Adam Redmond (Vocals/Guitar), James Borland (Lead guitar), Paul Hitchen (Bass) and Ben Harrington (Drums). They formed back in 2012 after they were offered a live show at a large venue in their hometown by a promoter who’d heard them rehearsing in a back yard!
In November 2013, the band gave away a free download; ‘You Invented Horror’ which immediately brought them to the attention of regional introducing station BBC Manchester. Following that, saw the release of the debut single’ Last Night She Said’ which was where the band’s momentum really started to take off. The Relays picked up features from the likes of Manchester Evening News, Fred Perry Subculture, BBC Manchester Introducing as well finding an avid fan in The Verve and Oasis iconic cover artist Brian Cannon who will in fact be behind the band’s forthcoming single cover artwork.
