FRESH: ‘Underneath The Pain’ – noyou

noyou go “Underneath The Pain”


British synth-pop band noyou start 2021 with a superb retro pop-rock track, “Underneath The Pain”, released today, which is written by keyboardist and backing vocalist Joey Campbell.

noyou hail from Sunderland and met four years ago, releasing their first single, “The War”, in 2019. “Underneath The Pain” is a fast moving mid-80’s sounding tune with a big band feel to it.

“Underneath The Pain” followed a process of sharing demos over lockdown, before being refined by Connor Jobes’ producing and mixing. Describing the meaning behind the track, lyricist Joey explains: “The track explores feelings of insecurity in relationships, as well as holding yourself to a standard no one can possibly achieve and beating yourself up when you fail”.

Having already anchored themselves firmly within their regional scene through shows at established venues such as Riverside (Newcastle), Independent (Sunderland) and The Cluny (Newcastle), the band are raring to go and eagerly await the return of live music. The boys were not idle in 2020 with four releases including the indie sounding “Since That Day” and more 80’s retrowave vibes with “We’re So Sorry”.

noyou are: Connor Jobes (vocals/guitar), Joey Campbell (keyboard/vocals), Ryan banks (bass) Sam Thoburn (guitar), Chris Keepin (guitar) and Brad Davison (drums).
