We’re No Heroes are back with their latest indie funk infused single Stay Weird, released digitally on 13th November 2015 via Spiral Icon. The single will also be available as a double a-side single on vinyl along with indie punk belter Voodoo, on 27th November 2015.
Stay Weird premiered on Gigwise who described it as 'Unbelievable funk'. You can stream the track now via Spiral Icon's Soundcloud page.
The band combine raw, punk and indie energy, fusing this sound with grooves and melodies akin to soul act Jungle, creating their own unique and exciting sound. Stay Weird kicks off with a sharp guitar hook before developing into their groove-laden indie disco style. The song is an ode to feeling proud of being different and letting what’s unique abut yourself grow instead of holding it back.
Voodoo is the edgier side of the single, but its origins come from a very personal place. Lyrically, it captures the uncertainty following a painful break up, and the need to move on into the unknown before being able to truly find happiness. While the theme may sound heavy duty, the upbeat guitar and driving vocals creates a truly accomplished party song. Voodoo gained a number of supporters upon its original release including BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq) and Amazing Radio (Shell Zenner).
Originally formed in a downtown studio space in Chicago, the band are Tom Collins (vocals and guitar), Luke Llewellyn (drums and vocals) and Michael Owen (bass and vocals). Having known each other since childhood, their close connection shows in everything they do from their performances to their hands on approach to loyal fans, aka WNH The Wolfpack. We’re No Heroes have played alongside the likes of Public Service Broadcast, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Future Of The Left and have been busy playing a host of UK festivals over the summer.
Stay Weird is released digitally on 13th November 2015 via Spiral Icon. Double a-side single Stay Weird / Voodoo is released 27th November 2015 on vinyl.
