Today, our new music spotlight is on Estates

Location: Manchester

Line-up: Mark Bowman (Vocals/rhythm guitar/synth), Rory McColgan (Guitar), Ben Richardson (Guitar/vocal)

About: With jangly guitars, textured riffs and dreamy vocals, Estates create a unique surf rock sound that is part North of England and part California coastline. With a hint of their musical heritage coming through in influences such as The Strokes, the band have taken the music that inspires them and created something fresh and exciting. Know Your Name is their addictively upbeat nostalgic indie pop debut single, which romanticises about youth.

What Hidden Herd say: Blasting through the crisp winter cold with notions of the charming British summer, ESTATES deliver their flavours of dancefloor-ready indie with an assertive, Mancunian kick.

For fans of: The Strokes, The Drums
