Chris Hawkins of BBC 6 Music described indie rockers No Hot Ashes’ latest single as “a thumping banger, like Happy Mondays meets Franz Ferdinand.” If you’re after a close encounter of the Northern kind, you can catch them No Hot Ashes live over the next two weeks.
They will showcase their latest single W.Y.N.A. (When You’re Not Around) and other songs from their forthcoming album, Hardship Starship. Due out on August 16, 2019, the record will cover economic inequality, crime and life in austerity Britain.
W.Y.N.A is more personal than political. Lead singer and guitarist Isaac Taylor explained that it’s “about kicking off with loved ones, sleep deprivation and the cyclical nature of relationships. It’s an acoustic song that was rescued from obscurity, electrified and pimped with synth bleeps and rock riffs.
