Saytr Play waste no time as they release ‘Bang Average’
There’s been no messing around for Manchester’s indie pop band Saytr Play who have released their newest single ‘Bang Average’ in the first few days of 2019. Produced by the bassist of Courteeners Joe Cross, it promises to be a catchy and exciting song. With it already picked up by BBC Music Introducing in Manchester. Within the last few years they have been a band to watch. After their previous singles were well received by their constantly growing fan base.
‘Bang Average‘ tackles the tricky subject of love – a subject covered by almost every band to exist. Yet Saytr Play make it their own and they give us a fresh perspective. The song commentates on a boy who falls in love with an out of bounds girl, commenting on the longstanding question of why we change the way we view ourselves because of other people’s opinions. The quintet have described the song as ‘an anthem for the hopeless romantic and the inexperienced youth,’ a perfect way to sum up this tune.
Satyr Play have built up a reputation for being an energetic and wild live band. This is partly down to frontman Fred Farrell’s strong charisma and distinctive vocals, helping to draw the audience in. The delicate balance between each instrument, from guitarist Jamie Vere’s short bursts of chords to the skilful drum beats, is the recipe for a perfect band, and hints that these are people who know what they’re doing.
It’s fair to say that ‘Bang Average’ is much more than your average banger.
