TUNE noyou - We're So Sorry
Describing themselves as “synthy, fuzzy, electronic, fun, pop, rock,” the Sunderland outfit certainly sound exciting, and that’s exactly what they are. Covering the heavy rock undertones in big synth pop riffs creating an indie sound that you can’t stop listening to. Early singles ‘The War’ and ‘The Distance’ have been repeatedly followed up with soothing pop bangers. Their latest single ‘We’re
So Sorry’ is no different and delivers everything you’d want to see from this band.
Creating quite a stir, noyou have burst onto the North-East music scene, performing in well-known venues such as Riverside (Newcastle), Independent (Sunderland) and The Cluny (Newcastle) whilst also working alongside nationally acclaimed promoters Scruff Of The Neck and SSD Concerts. Originally starting as the, solo, creative outlet of Connor Jobes, ‘noyou’ then evolved into a six- piece live band. Success has been rife away from gigs too with the band featuring on Tipping Point’s ‘Tipper of the Week’ as well as gaining radio play from BBC Introducing in the North East.
When asked specifically about the lyrical content of the new single noyou frontman, Connor Jobes,
explained: “we’re so sorry looks to explore the recent happenings in the world regarding racism, from the perspective of someone who doesn’t know what they can do to aid the progress.” He then went on to discuss how he personally always struggles with these issues and is on a constant journey of learning. Connor also added “Throughout the whole thing all I found myself wanting to say was sorry. Sorry that the world is like this and people allow these things to happen.”
Creating the track was a more involved process than usual for the band with keys player Joey singing lead vocals on the second verse. The band also gathered a large group of friends (including Robyn Walker of Picnic / bigfatbig) to lend a hand with the chorus backing vocals.
