Yorkshire based boyband :PM are set to take the UK by storm with the release of their catchy debut single ‘Grown Ups’. The band’s smooth guitar riffs, memorable lyrics and Yorkshire twang that add up to make this pop-smash song have already seen early comparisons to styles of One Direction, Rixton and early Arctic Monkeys releases.
Made up of lead singer Dan Reynard (21), bassist Joe Morley (22), drummer Alex Boulton (21) and guitar duo Josh Stockdale (20), and Harry Yates (20), the stylish group of boys decided to forgo University and focus their time and energy on creating the music they love.
Harry and Josh created the band at school and after hearing Dan sing, he was asked to join immediately, with drummer Alex joining the trio shortly after. Going on to win the Harrogate AMP Music Awards in 2012 and record in Johnny Depp’s Studio in Los Angeles, the four boys introduced newest member Joe only three years ago and :PM became the line up we see today.
The enigmatic five-piece have taken inspiration from artists such as 5SOS, Kings of Leon, Justin Bieber and The 1975, along with using their individual musical tastes to influence and shape their well rounded sound and style.
The band has a wealth of talent, they are not only able to play and create their own songs with a powerful sound that would rival established bands; but also the ability to show visual creativity, with the ‘Grown Ups’ video being produced and created entirely by the band, which reflects the boys friendship, personalities and charm.
More independent than other new boybands, such as PRETTYMUCH, with youth, passion and looks on their side, it’s safe to say the release of ‘Grown Ups’ could spark the start of something special.
