Overpass, Birmingham’s rising rock outfit, have just shared their new single, ‘Stay Up’, lifted from their eagerly awaited debut EP, From the Night, set to drop on February 16th. The band’s unique sound, combining euphoric indie anthems with thunderous guitar riffs, is on full display in this new track.
The band are also gearing up for their headline tour this spring, which includes sold-out shows in Manchester and Glasgow and a huge performance at London’s Oslo on March 14th. After that, they’re closing the circuit with their largest headlining show at Birmingham’s O2 Institute on April 6th.
Since their first headline show two years ago, Overpass has drummed up a dedicated fan base, opening for acts like Inhaler and Two Door Cinema Club. They’ve also lit up the festival circuit, including Truck, Boardmasters, and Kendal Calling, culminating in supporting tours with The Royston Club and Vistas.
‘Stay Up’ follows their successful singles ‘Alright’ and ‘Beautiful,’ which earned acclaim from various media outlets and support from BBC Radio 1 and Radio X. This new track epitomises their ability to create rousing indie rock anthems.
Vocalist Max Newy sheds light on ‘Stay Up,’ saying, “This song came from ruminating over past experiences and relationships. It questions the authenticity of great times, exploring whether they were truly as wonderful as remembered or if nostalgia colours our perception.”
“The EP represents a new stage for us, capturing our essence as artists,” adds Max. “Working with producer Rich Turvey was effortless; his vision and ability to highlight our strengths have been incredible.”
Look out for our interview with the band next month!
