Review: St. Buryan - 'Forget To Love'
St. Buryan's shimmering new indie pop single reminds us why not to 'Forget To Love'.
After making a successful return to the North East music scene after a short hiatus, 2017 is shaping up to be one of the best years yet for indie-rock band St. Buryan.
Following on from 'Everything I Said' and 'Lucid', the 27th of October marks the release of the band's third single this year: 'Forget to Love'.
Harmonized vocals and rhythms immediately ease you into the satisfyingly catchy beat of this sublime indie-pop track. Sure to have you tapping your toes before you know it, the tempo steadily builds through the use of tantalizing guitar riffs and rhythmic drum beats.
Throughout 'Forget to Love' the verses and choruses blend into each other effortlessly whilst frontman Ben’s striking vocals shine throughout, until reaching his intense declaration of Let it never be said that love isn’t true” - hard to argue with such passionate words.
Despite being an almost 4 minute track, the smooth flow of this song never makes it seem excessive, and in fact make 'Forget to Love' one of those tunes that you won't grow tired of hearing any time soon.
Even though St. Buryan are still very much a DIY band, the high production value of this track really shows the progress the five lads from Newcastle and Sunderland have made in recent months.
It’s also worth giving St. Buryan a big shout out for being a band that is always seen actively supporting the local music scene and other artists in every way possible, may it be via social media or rocking up at their shows, which gets a big thumbs up from us at Spotlight UK!
And, being a fantastic live band themselves (who have already played alongside the likes of dream-rock sensations Flyte) they have earned themselves a lot of support and a growing fanbase in return.
Your next chance to catch St. Buryan live for yourself is the 31st of October at the Jumpin' Jacks Halloween Ball in Newcastle on a lineup that also features local favorites Deep.Sleep, The Adlets, The 901s, Post Rome and Fosseway.
But before then be sure to check out 'Forget to Love' which is available on all good music streaming sites. And of course give the band a follow on their social media as well to keep informed of upcoming releases and shows.
