Since catching No Hot Ashes at Neighbourhood Festival back in October, the Stockport four piece have been a definite band to watch for me. In a world of indie bands with the exact same sound as one another, No Hot Ashes are a stand out band. Early releases ‘Goose’ and ‘Cool Cat’ have been firm favourites of mine for a while, so when I discovered the brand new ‘Bellyaches’ in my inbox I got a little bit excited.
No more than 30 seconds into my first listen of ‘Bellyaches’ I knew it was going to become one of my favourite songs of 2017 so far. With powerful vocals and more riffs than you could ask for this is most definitely the band’s strongest release yet. No Hot Ashes sound like a band that’ve been doing this forever, there’s not a single flaw in this new single, just perfect indie-funk.
No Hot Ashes are one of the most refreshing, exciting bands I’ve come across in a long time and with a rapidly building fanbase and sold out headline shows, it won’t be long before they’re the next big thing.
‘Bellyaches’ is available now on all digital platforms.
