Belfast based Alt-Rock Trio Gnarkats have just released their new single ‘Volume Up’ named after a joke about when Louis Nelson (Bass/Vocals) had the volume down on bass while recording the EP. The guys describe the single as…

“A song about pressure of knowing what you want in life, how to get there, getting to know yourself and loosely, about how much this matters in a relationship. Life is a journey and it is important to experience it with someone.”

It’s a great tune to pick you up out of this end of summer feeling, it’s fun, uplifting, and hopeful; even the opening lines ‘Come and fly with me/ Venture overseas’ reflect exactly the kind of thing a lot of us want to look forward to after the weirdness of 2020. If you like the Indie sound of bands like Los Campesinos! You’re going to love Gnarkats and their new track.
