Devon – based indie-pop band Haytor recently released their single and accompanying video for ‘Sirens’.
Since forming in Exeter in 2016, with eccentric and lively performances, and charismatic pop hooks, Haytor have gigged consistently across the South West, playing with acts such as Deep Blue Something (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and Outlya, and gaining airplay across the U.K, and more recently, all over the globe.
On the Sirens, the band say:
“This song is the story of someone who’s down on their luck, and struggling through but constantly trying to battle with their own thoughts and frame of mind. The song is very high energy and I really wanted to contrast the liveliness of the track with some quite dark introspective lyrics”.
This young energetic band are made up of Austin Robison – Lead Vocals & Piano, Jonny Lewis on guitar & backing vocals, Cal Verney on Drums, Ryan Hawkins on guitar and Austin’s brother, Cameron Robison on bass & backing vocals.
“Eclectic pop rock – complete with angelic piano licks, crisp guitar tone, solid thumping bass and wide open drums to give it that driving sound Haytor has so elegantly mastered. Once you add Austin’s dynamically diverse vocals the whole band ties together creating one big sound lifting the spirits of every tired soul in the room.” – On The House Music
“Haytor are one of the most exciting bands to come out of South-West England for a while. They’re hard to define, but that’s precisely why we like them so much…” – One On One
