Today featuring on NEW MUSIC NOW we have a popular act hailing from Sheffield called Bayonet with their new track ‘Everything’, although they’ve been on the radar for a while the right time never came to feature them, but now the stars are aligned and everything is in place. The track will be released on Scruff of the Neck Records, an increasingly popular label around the area.
The track is really bright and vibrant with the clean cut singing and a popping guitar attracting some similarities to The 1975, however the band do not rip them off at all as they only have subtle influences while maintaining their own vibe. With the song just clocking in under three minutes it makes a great pop song, as it’s so easy to be caught up singing along after listening for one minute.
The catchy riff is possibly the highlight of the song because it’s just so infectious yet simple, who said everything had to be complex. The production is perfect as everything sounds clear as bell and has a very professional style from start to finish, and it has been overly tampered with as everything sounds clean and raw.
This should be the start the catalyst for the band to go on and release more new music, and hopefully it reaches the bar that they have set themselves with this track.
