Leeds band Mantis State have kicked off 2021 already with their brand new single, “Sweetest Feature”, only their third release since they formed in 2015.
The song is a blend of indie-pop, funk and soft rock/pop with outstanding vocals from singer Cameron Bradbury as the song celebrates the unveiling the part of you, that you’ve been scared to show.
“Sweetest Feature” was produced by saxophonist Jack Bryanton in his home studio. Recording of the various parts took place both in the home studio, as well as The Nave Studio in Leeds. The song ventures slightly from their past tracks, “Lost Without A Trace” and “How Could You?”, usual jazz infused funk-rock sound, to a heavier, riff based, hard hitting alt-rocksound.
The band – Cameron Bradbury (vocals), Tom Fallis (keys), Dave Harris (drums), Cale Mckno (bass guitar), Callum East (guitar), Jacko Bryanton (saxophone) and Haydn Gilbert (saxophone) – tell us: “We took a lot of influence from songs like “Hold the Line” by TOTO, and “This Love” by Maroon 5 for this single”.
Get into 2021 with “Sweetest Feature”, I promise you a thrill of a ride!
