After forming in 2013 NO HOT ASHES have been making their mark on the Manchester music scene; supporting the likes of Blossoms, Spring King & The Amazons, along with playing a number of huge sellout headline shows.
With their previous tracks Cool Cat, Goose and Easy Peeler racking them up a number of listens on Spotify; No Hot Ashes are back with the release of their latest single Bellyaches.
Much like their other singles Bellyaches is an energetic bop which consists largely of synth-pop melodies and catchy rhythms. From the opening of the track there is a clear influence from fellow Stockport locals Blossoms; while the track still has its own unique edge. Throughout the chorus Isaac’s strong vocals are largely accompanied by funky riffs and upbeat backing vocals; compiling to give off a groovy, 1980s vibe.
The band worked on the track with producer Gavin Monaghan who’s collaborated with the likes of The Editors, Ocean Colour Scene & JAWS.
Discussing the meaning behind the track, No Hot Ashes told us: ‘Bellyaches was an exploration of how you get drunk on no budget; and then how you get home; and then the bellyaches you get the day after.’
Bellyaches only further highlights the talent from this prospective quartet who have already built up a massive following that will only continue to grow.
You can find the track across all major platforms including Spotify & iTunes. Physical copies & merch can be found here.
