Five Days North ‘Shapeshifters’

Five Days North are an energetic indie pop band based in Manchester. Band members Darryl Messer (Vocals, Synth), Dave Urwin (Guitar/banjo, Backing Vocals), Sam Taromsari (Guitar, Backing Vocals), Lewis Howells (Bass) and Zoravar Bakshi (Drums) create a blend of music that centres around powerful vocals, catchy choruses and electric banjo riffs. In the summer of 2016, they released their debut EP ‘Past Times’ and have since released a supporting music video for ‘Won’t Stop for Nothing’ that was directed by Lab Exposure UK. They have played a multitude of live events including gigs around the UK, alongside performing on festival stages such as Tribfest 2016, Warrington festival 2016 and multiple performances at Pangaea Festival. The quintet have now released their music video for their new single ‘Shapeshifters’.

‘Shapeshifters’ is a bright lustrous light bouncy slice of indie pop. The track is laced in peppy beats that add a spongy texture and elastic bounce. Twinkling guitars and jingling banjo riffs glisten throughout while the shimmering synths wrap the track in a smooth flurry of icing sugar. Instrumentally it is light and fluffy with a sweet melody and catchy chorus as the cherry on top however the vocals are brimming with soulful emotion and passion giving the light track a darker tone. This contrast makes for a richly textured song and brings a more emotional side to Five Days North’s sound.
