The spotlight for Artist Discovery is firmly fixed on Indie Pop Rockers, Myriad!
The Southampton based four piece have already begun making big waves on the UK music scene with their contagiously satisfying blend of rich guitar tones, a tightly tasty rhythm section and memorable vocal hooks.
The bands latest single campaign puts a particular focus on mental health - with the band aiming the record will open up more conversation on the topic, whilst spreading their positive message of support and solidarity along the way...
Having released music consistently since 2018, the latest single 'I Walk' was released on 17th April 2020 and provides an delightfully exciting glimpse at just what these up and coming musicians are capable of...
The skilfully written and well produced track oozes commercial potential - drawing similarities to the likes of The 1975, Pale Waves & Two Door Cinema mixed with their own unique twist.
The track was also featured as Southampton's very own Voice FM’s ‘Homegrown Hit’ for 2 weeks.
The lyrics to I Walk come from an incredibly personal place for lead singer David Littleton. He spoke about the song in depth on the band's social media:
"I Walk is about a teacher I had at my primary school. He was an extremely kind, caring and compassionate man. When I was at the age of about 4 or 5, before I had even picked up a musical instrument, he was the very first person to suggest to my parents that I might have some kind of musical talent. He said that I should listen to every style of music out there, so I did. He also recommended that I learn a few musical instruments along the way. One day he wasn't at school though, and I didn't really understand why at the time. I'll always miss the way he would play guitar in assemblies whilst we sang along to songs on the projector. I think this song is a way of making things feel a little better."
The single was further backed by an accompanying music video release on 9th May, impressively filmed/edited by BCB Media, with each band member portraying a story focusing on peoples internal struggles with mental health with a positive resolution for each of them. The band will be releasing a series of short videos with each band member discussing their role in the music video and what it means to them.
All of this is interwoven with the band running a campaign to spread mental health awareness and raise money for mental health charity Solent Mind. You can find out more on their JustGiving Page.
