New Single ‘What Ya Sayin?’ Released 12th February 2021
The Banquets follow up their stunning debut single ‘Red Sky Morning’ with a racy, irresistibly catchy track that really shows the diversity and unpredictability of this band.
The Banquets are an alternative rock/pop trio that had quite an explosive introduction to the music scene in 2019-2020, appearing on the Introducing stage at the Great British Folk Festival, supporting The South (formerly The Beautiful South) on their UK tour, and supporting legendary icon Toyah Wilcox. They captivated audiences up and down the country with their infectious energy, their northern charm, and the formidable voice of their lead singer. They might appear to be an acoustic outfit, but their sound is surprisingly big and often ecstatic. This second release encapsulates the very essence of The Banquets’ onstage energy.
‘What Ya Sayin?’ is a pop song with grit, blending risque lyrics, playful beats and real attitude. This time around, The Banquets wanted to create something that really shows their versatility, whilst mirroring their infectious energy on stage. ‘What Ya Sayin?’ does just that.
