WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM FOR THE GIRL – WAKE ME UP
For The Girl is an energetic indie rock sextet hailing from Nottingham, known for their unique eview fusion of various genres. Despite the potential clashes that may arise from this amalgamation, the band manages to create a well-received style of music that instantly captivates listeners.
Frontman Sam Plenty brings his own distinct style and vocal tone to the table, which has been an integral part of the band since its inception. Alongside him, Josh King contributes a distinctive scratchy style of play on the guitar, adding an additional layer of character to their sound. James Wells, often referred to as the “King of the keys”, is a musical virtuoso who recently returned from a break to infuse the band’s music with funk, jazz and his ability to effortlessly play any instrument. Foxy, the drummer, acts as the beating heart of the band with his old-school, no-nonsense approach to rhythm.
The newest addition to the group, Jack Boylan, formerly of The Tangents, has joined to strengthen the band’s rhythm section. His presence adds depth and cohesion to their overall sound. Ryan Wilson, on lead guitar, draws influences from bands like The Amazons and Foals, showcasing his talent through melodic and catchy riffs that occasionally escalate into face-melting solos.
They’re dropping a trilogy of songs this year through Regent Street Records – “Wake Me Up” being the first to be released. It is a powerful indie-rock track that encapsulates the band’s signature sound.
The strong vocals combined with a compelling solo guitar create an irresistible blend of energy and melody. That’s also the band’s loudest track to date that definitely wakes us up and we love this! Which makes it an excellent candidate for exhilarating live performances with its vibrant and lively quality.
All in all, “Wake Me Up” is a testament to their musical prowess and unique style. With their talent and dedication, it’s clear that this band is destined for great things.
