Envy Motel are set to release their upcoming single, “Trendsetter” this Friday, the 20th of November accompanied with the release of their first ever lyric video on YouTube. After getting exclusive access to this track ahead of its release I can confirm that Indie Rock lovers of the North East should be waiting in anticipation for their next favourite song.
The South Shields band, made up of Stephen Armstrong (Vocals) , James Dunn (guitar), Callum Cabello (base) and Luke Pattinson (drums), has been rising to a status of popularity as of late. This is seen through various radio appearances on the likes of, local station, Spark FM ,BBC Introducing and headlining many of the North East’s Local venues. With ‘Trendsetter’, Envy Motel are taking one step further on this path to success.
Trendsetter is a track that from the offset, with its high speed pace, thrashing riffs and passionate lyrics, showcases the extent of this bands disproval for the narcissistic tendencies we see all around us in both society and on an individual level today, a message conveyed perfectly by unique, becoming and effortless vocals.
When discussing the track, the band stated: “we’re really happy with the way it turned out, the original idea for the song came from our bassist Callum, then we took it into the practice room and it evolved into the final product that you hear now.”
Permeated with prominent, punchy basslines flashes of perfect chords and complimentary surges of crashing drums, ‘Trendsetter’ creates a kaleidoscopic indie rock experience that combines the classic with the individualised, thanks to the promising talent showcased by this band.
If you just cant wait till Friday to hear this track then tune in to radio shields tonight at 8PM for your very own exclusive preview, or pre-save ‘Trendsetter’ on Spotify here:http://smarturl.it/
