There’s something immediately endearing about a bit of sincere British indie-rock, as you’ll hear from Hertfordshire four-piece Hyde Away – made up of four members, Conor Andrews (lead vocals and guitar), Max Hunt (backing vocals and guitar), Nathan Chetland-Poole (backing vocals and bass) and Alfie Gorman (drums).
Citing their influences as Courteeners, Two Door Cinema Club, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Circa Waves, they stick true to that tried-and-tested band set up with percussion backed guitars riding along that earwormy chorus in brand new single ’10:30′. They even have a good non-lyric singalong bit “oh-ay-oh” that we can totally imagine warming up a live crowd.
The song’s theme reflects the youthfulness of Hyde Away, as they reveal: “The song was written the morning after a night out in about 15 minutes. I was thinking about a girl I saw who was constantly on her phone whilst she was on a date with her boyfriend.”
All in all ’10:30′ is a solid indie-rock tune that would find a happy home on rock radio stations, festival set-lists or personalised playlists.
