Buckinghamshire based five piece New Bays release their new EP, Reckless, via Versic Records. Already bagging support spots with the likes of Elephants Are, Frankie And The Heartstrings and Young Kato, the boys have also shared the stage with The Cribs, Kids In Glass Houses and Reverend and The Makers at festival dates. Taking their inspiration from indie pop names including Arctic monkeys, The Black Keys and Kings of Leon, New Bays live shows are a raucous, infectious affair that have already gained them a growing fan base. Following the release of the low key single, late last year, ‘Crystal Blue’, the band have compiled the latest EP with four brand new tracks, including the lead track and live favourite, ‘Reckless’.
On ‘Reckless’ with its catchy guitar riffs, blended with lead singer Adam Beynett’s band boy vocals, it’s easy to see why the song is a regular crowd pleaser. Second track ‘Would She Lie’ has an infectious quality, with an opening hook that envelopes Beynetts almost narrative lyrics, building with thumping drums and a just as catchy chorus. A more rockier affair than its predecessor, ‘Would She Lie’ is followed by ‘Someone To Love’, continuing the guitar lead qualities. Lyrically the boys address youthful themes of love and relationships with repetitive phrasing. Closing the EP is ‘Beat The Same’ in which the band create a lackadaisical ambience with stripped back chords to open. Crescendoing into a simmering bridge, New Bays round off with another indie band number.
