The Heavy North, a vibrant five-piece situated on bustling Merseyside, have started the new year as they mean to go on with honest and relatable single Satisfy You.
The heartfelt song tells the listener about an issue that is rife amongst contemporary society: the negative and harrowing aspects of social media and the importance of blocking out internet hate.
Satisfy You roars into life with the convincing strumming of an electric guitar and the sturdy beat of the percussion creating a powerful underbelly, before frontman and lead singer Kenny Stuart bounces into life, expressing his thoughts on ‘online trolls and keyboard warriors’, and how he is not there to satisfy them.
A captivating guitar riff is often intrinsic to rock music, and the garage, bluesy style band certainly latch onto this notion with such a gripping riff that serves as the focal point to the music.
A late bridge succeeds in drawing you in with an increasing drumbeat upping the tempo before unleashing a bundle of energy with one final wave of a catchy chorus, stamping the message home.
The message conveyed is indeed sincere, and hopefully galvanises listeners who may have dealt with such abuse themselves, offering support and reminding people that such ‘trolls’ have no place in their thoughts.
Stuart detailed the meaning behind Satisfy You aptly portraying the candidness of the message, "Satisfy You is a song about the negative side of social media and the internet, like online trolls and keyboard warriors”.
Stuart continued the discussion, illuminating the album’s potential for success, “We've had a fantastic response to the last few singles we've released from our album, and due to the global delay in vinyl manufacturing we've had to delay Electric Soul Machine by a couple of months"
