It may be the middle of January, there may be snow forecast to soon cripple the UK and we may be heading towards a difficult Brexit, so allow The Bay Rays‘ ‘Satisfaction’ to transport you to warmer climes. The slow, drawling introduction opens up to put together a slacker rock anthem reminiscent of 2016 breakthroughs Beach Baby. Similarly to the immediate ‘New Home’, the lads have once again developed a killer choral hook set to be bellowed back in force throughout small rooms and festival tents before they obviously ascend to the big leagues.
Shortly heading out on tour with the Hidden Charms, this trio have crafted an art in balancing a frantic immediacy with slow burning rock sensibility, the latter quality particularly important for replays and ‘Satisfaction’’s soaring Spotify count. Working with the ever-successful Supercat PR, the band have been tipped for success by the likes of NME, DIY and BBC Introducing to achieve big things in 2017. ‘Satisfaction’ is the perfect, personifying introduction to The Bay Rays.
