Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Stay // Asleep. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their rough sound and energy.
What a great energy the songs of this talented band have.
An addictive rhythm that leaves no escape in the typical and irreverent style of English Punk/Rock.
The voice of the singer is cool and in some moments reminded me of Greg Graffin of Bad Religion.
The rhythm section moves in perfect synchrony and the bass follows the movements of the kick like a shadow.
The guitars incessantly push with their strong and acid sounds perfect for this genre, and the vocalist’s timbre is the icing on the cake to complete this unique and immediately recognizable sound.
You can feel that these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room because they managed to reach an enviable musical understanding.
A beautiful discovery that I absolutely recommend.
Pay To Play is Stay // Asleep’s Single Out Now!
Pure music, real music!
Quote: “This track is all about the nefarious side of the music industry; the monopolisation of streaming platforms which presents artists with limitations over how their artform is managed and distributed. Additionally, is raises concerns over the disingenuous way certain individuals take advantage of bands to profiteer in the market.
This track was written to enlighten the listener and more importantly empower all musicians into taking back control of their art. By rising above what ‘so-called’ industry leaders dictate to be sellable, fashionable and successful, we can all forge our own paths“.
