Premiere: The Manatees release brand new single ‘Headstrong’

The Manatees are set to release cathartic summer anthem ‘Headstrong’. This follows on from previous singles ‘Milan’ and ‘What If’, which was featured on the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Radio X.

The latest track is an observation of our society’s reaction to the world around us, particularly the media we are exposed to on a day-to-day basis that leaves us confused and apathetic. Southampton- based The Manatees draw inspiration from the likes of The Strokes, Kings of Leon and The Libertines, Southampton-based to infuse relatable lyrics with driving rhythms and infectious melodies.

The band describe the track as “Headstrong is an angsty confession of the self-doubt and distrust that current media outlets create within us; whether that be Instagram models who never seem to suffer a bad day, or a constant stream of click bait and fake news that leaves us not knowing to believe.”

Check the song out now before it gets officially released on 19th July.
