Whilst the pandemic has cast an ominous cloud over the music industry and a strain on live performances, four-piece indie rock band The Notion have been delicately welding away at new songs to fill their listener’s ravenous appetite.
This week they return with the single ‘What Were You Expecting?’, a lyrically gifted song that touches on the nostalgia of life before the pandemic and the halt of live music but provides a hopeful and upbeat feeling throughout the song. Recorded with Rob Whiteley at Whitewood Studios in Liverpool, this new song is class A, and it follows in fine style the releases that came before.
Distinctive vocals and high-octane guitar strumming are just two of the embroiling features on the hard-hitting rock song. It sounds good on the ears but probably even better at a live show.
Along with the expected success of ‘What Were You Expecting?’, The Notion already boast over 28,000 streams on Spotify, something which many bands could only ever dream about accomplishing.
Taking influences from bands such as Oasis and DMA’s, the chances are, if you are familiar with the up-and-coming indie scene, you will have stumbled across The Notion before. Being Manchester-based, the band fuse anthemic riffs with catchy choruses to create melodic songs that will stay in your mind and heart forever.
'What Were You Expecting?' is out now on all major streaming platforms.
