Stockport-based band No Hot Ashes released a new indie/funk rock track “Eight Till Late“. This is their first single from the debut EP Skint Kids Disco, which is due for release on March 30, 2018, on the Modern Sky Label. The lyrics of the track are personal and touching, that’s what the frontman Isaac Taylor says about it:
“The single is about mental health and how it’s affected me and people around me. I wanted to give a fairly honest account of how day to day struggles can weigh on the brain, everything from work to your favourite fizzy drinks being tampered with. As a band we think that modern life is all a bit much and taking time to fix your head is essential.”
These four 18-21 year-olds were lucky enough to be noticed by an experienced producer Gavin Monaghan. Their previous singles, such as “Goose“, “Easy Peeler“, “Bellyaches” have been featured and praised on many radio stations, blogs and zines. They have also supported some bands such as Spring King or Blossoms on their tours around UK.
The guys are still pretty far from a huge national success, however they found their own style and shouldn’t stop doing what they love to. Their sound is influenced by 70s-80s disco and funk genres and the songs are full of youthful rebellion. One of the biggest advantages of young bands these days is the knowledge of using social media – No Hot Ashes are nicely interacting with their followers on various platforms.
