“If Royal Blood and ACDC had a child and fed it on a diet of Cleopatrick and Jimi Hendrix you’d end up with Zac and The New Men.”
Formed during the Covid lockdowns by bored teenagers, Zac and The New Men have taken the Swansea music scene by storm since their first gig in July 2021.
Released on 4th February ‘Deeper’ is the 4th single from the band and is already receiving critical acclaim. With blueslaidened riffs and a vocal performance reminiscent of the greats that have come before them this track showcases talent beyond their years and is sure to be a hit with festival audiences.
‘Deeper was written as a commentary on society today, about being judged by outward appearances and expressing anger at feeling held back by others perceptions of who you are. The song empowers and encourages you to get on, keep moving forwards to achieve your goals. Don’t be put off by others, do it for yourself, aim high and you will succeed’
Written, recorded and produced by 17-year-olds there’s a rawness and energy that’s relevant to young people today. The whole song was recorded “off the floor” giving it a great dynamic feel with changes of tempo adding punch and huge guitar riffs providing the energy to push you onwards.
A South Wales based band bringing you screaming guitar led Blues Rock like you’ve never heard it before. Formed during the 2020 COVID lockdowns these guys have hit the road running and are making themselves heard. With three singles already released and their next due out in early 2022 it’s only a matter of time before you’ll see them on the biggest stages.
Made up of Zac, Will, James and Oli all in college together these guys live for their music, there is nothing else. They’ve already been compared to Royal Blood, Queens of the stone age and the red hot chillis with their catchy riffs and amazing stage presence.
In the short time the guys have been playing together they have been recognised by BBC introducing and made it through to the final of the Radio 1 Live Lounge competition as one of the four Welsh submissions championed by Adam Walton who’s words on first hearing them were: “WOW, is the only response I can muster”
