Five Days North are a five piece from Manchester who have been drip feeding their opalescent blend of jangly guitar riffs and sugary pop melodies since 2016.
The band have announced that their first new music for the year will be the track, ‘Take Me Higher’, to be released on 26 June.
The track is their most dancefloor-ready single to date with liquid-like synths built around a punchy bass line. The summer time anthem, which has already been championed by BBC Introducing, has been crafted to ensure that sing-alongs can be assured when their live gigs return.
“Take Me Higher is our most collaborative song from a writing perspective as everyone had a tangible impact on the final track. When it’s safe to return to the gig scene, we’re really excited to see hear our fans sing along to what we think is a big step forward for us,” said Darryl Messer, lead singer of Five Days North.
The Mancunians won Best Unsigned Band at the UK Unsigned Music Awards in 2017 and have since been honing their craft. Lockdown has helped focus their attention on recording and mastering tracks, with ‘Take Me Higher’ being the first result to come from this hardwork.
Refreshingly for a northern band, Five Days North embrace the pop music which is at the root of their sound. They recently covered Dua Lipa’s hit, ‘Don’t Start Now’, to huge success.
Five Days North are bringing the colour back into the largely monochromatic world of the 21st century guitar band. And we are very much here for it.
‘Take Me Higher’ will be available across all major streaming platforms from 26 June 2020.
