Formed in Middlesbrough in 2012, Alex Smith (guitar/vocals), Roy Myers (bass/vocals) and Haz Casson (drums) have had a wealth of experience in the local music scene, all of which is evident in their newly released track, ‘Hold On’.
Influenced by many iconic artists including Alkaline Trio, Angels & Airwaves and Biffy Clyro, Set your Sights have created a single reminiscent of summer days on a Northern beach.
With its mix of nostalgic rhythms, heavy guitar riffs, heartfelt drums and raw vocals, the band’s energy is portrayed with an uplifting overlay that makes you tap your feet and sing along.
Having always had a soft spot for northern bands who embrace their roots through their music, Set Your Sights has become one I’m keen to see and hear more of. I’m excited for the future of this band, I really am.
‘Hold On’ can be found on YouTube and Spotify now.
