Hailing from Widnes, indie-rock quartet ‘SYFTA’ are back with a bang, with the impending release of their anthem of teenage-angst, ‘Breathe’.
Frontman Harry Whiston wrote the song in an effort to analyse the importance of stepping back and taking a breath when things seem to become too much; “I wrote Breathe about when things start to go wrong, a few events can start to pile up and I just wanted to highlight the importance of looking at the bigger picture.” And the combination of Jake Gregory’s synth and the reverberant vocals in the pre-chorus perfectly encapsulate this.
Joe Drake is a stand-out performer on the drums in the track, which lend themselves to heavier rock sounds, contrasting with Jake Gregory’s intricate lead guitar over the chorus.
The release follows an anticipated return to the live music scene, the band playing a huge sold out show alongside Manchester outfit, The K’s, and this all together is only the beginning. SYFTA are headed for their first ever headline dates in March in Manchester and Liverpool, before joining Sheffield rockers The Reytons on two dates of their sold-out UK tour.

Breathe is available to stream on all streaming services on Friday 28th of February.
