LISTEN: Bare Roots release new single ‘Away Too Long’

Hot on the heals of their epic debut release, ‘Ride The Wave’, the latest product of Newcastle’s burgeoning indie rock scene have confirmed the release of their follow up single ‘Away Too Long’, set for digital and streaming release on Good Friday, April 19th.

Having made a statement that this sound expanding force are here for the long haul with their debut, the band are poised to take things up and another sonic level with their latest offering.

Clocking in at just under four minute mark, the anthemic and highly infectious ‘Away Too Long’ reminds us of why we fell in love with the guys with guitars in the first place; big choruses, hooky bass lines, mesmerising rock guitar solos turned to eleven, heavy drum loops and a spine tingling vocal line that wouldn’t sound out of place on the arena circuit, delivered by Bare Roots charismatic front man, Anthony Francis.

Speaking about the new single, he said: “The track was influenced by those big nostalgic rock songs. Tracks such as ‘Go Your Own Way’ by Fleetwood Mac and ‘Hold Back The River’ by James Bay spring to mind.

“Although we’ve only recently launched as a band, we have a lot of material already written and recorded. We’ve had Away Too Long for a while now and we’re excited to put it out there.

“We work hard on our tunes and it’s all we do. We’ve focused on the art of songwriting and music production so that we can offer the listener something truly homegrown.

“People are often surprised that we’ve created it all ourselves! Away Too Long is a heartbreak tune. If you’ve experienced an ounce of heartbreak in your time, then I’m sure you can relate to it.”
