track of the week ~ the bayonettes ~ '2 miles for me is 1000 for you'

Name: The Bayonettes 
Genre: Alternative 
For Fans Of: Glasvegas, Foals, Biffy Clyro
Location: Coleraine

On The Bayonettes last major release, the huge sounding 'Post-Kiss' EP, they displayed the kind of happy-sad dynamics that made stars of their North coast contemporaries And So I Watch You From Afar. Capturing this alongside frontman Danny McClellend's bittersweet poetry, The Bayonettes proved that they were a band of real depth, that their anthemic chorus' weren't just for show and that this was a band with a vision. On new single '2 Miles For Me Is 1000 For You', they take this vision trip a step further, resulting in a rock song two parts Foals, and three parts Biffy Clyro.

It's whirring feedback and menacing guitar parts echo A Plastic Rose at their most fierce (think 'Oceans', 'The Stuttering' etc). Though that's not to say The Bayonette's haven't grafted their own sound. Far from it in fact, and one of their most recognisable features is McClellend's vocals, distinctive, raw; and as he laments in the songs final breath's 'tell me that there's something more than this' you begin to wonder what else there may be. The possibilities are exciting. The Bayonettes are improving and this is their best work to date.
