“Put Down The Phone“, the new single from Newcastle three-piece indie rock band Don Coyote can best be described as a heady mix of indie-soft rock and angsty indie rock. According to the band, it is inspired by the sudden realisation of having outgrown old friends, finding time with them more irritating than entertaining.
Produced and engineered by the band’s lead singer and guitarist Sam, with help from Andy Bell at Blast Studios for the drums, and mixed and mastered by Ed Denholm of Distance Learning, the track comes on the back of their debut EP Don Quixote’s Tinder Profile, which was released earlier this year.
The band are named after a play on the name of the foolish Spanish nobleman, and after making their debut last year with a few single releases, they have quickly been garnering support from the likes of BBC Radio Newcastle, Nova Radio, Indie Rocks, and BBC Introducing, among others.
Known in the North East and in London for their live performances, their live music sound is often described as a bit jazzy, a bit rocky, and one that will certainly get you grooving, with a bit of improvisation sprinkled in as well.
