THE BAY RAYS
If you were at Glastonbury this year you might have already come across The Bay Rays – they closed the BBC Introducing stage on the Sunday night and are attracting praise from high places. The boys from Kent might only be a threepiece but they don’t half manage to make a racket.
‘New Home‘ is a balls out, swaggering, strutting gutpunch of a song. It’s three minutes long but it feels shorter as it bashes you round the head with a thump of drums, a tangle of guitars and a boisterous chorus.
On the one hand it feels very modern and fresh and yet on the other it feels almost nostalgic, harking back to early punk rock and evoking Ramones-esque sounds. It’s not pretty but it’s effective and fun, and it’s exciting to see how far The Bay Rays can go from here.
