UK band Everywhere have announced their first 2017 release in the form of new single Man Up, currently available to stream on Soundcloud. It’s due to be available to purchase and available on Spotify on June 9th.
The track features a funky bassline underpinning its pop-rock sound, and includes a feature by Swedish singer/songwriter Rebecca Nohr. You can also listen to the track on YouTube, here:
Looking past the catchy chorus, the lyrics discuss struggling with meeting the expectations set by traditional masculinity, and how to manage being with a dominant partner.
Everywhere have also said that they are working on an album, and although it’s early days “it should be out this fall”.
At the end of last year, Everywhere released their EP Fiction Act. The EP single Some Other Dude was featured on BBC Introducing in London and has received over a million streams on Spotify. I gave Fiction Act a review when I focused in on the band during my New Music Spotlight: you can give that a read here.
