The Heydaze Releases New Single 'New Religion' And It's Pop Rock At Its Finest

By  April 25, 2017

The Heydaze is a seriously underrated pop rock band from New York, USA. This band has been around since 2014 but they haven’t got nearly enough recognition as they deserve.

Back in their early years, the band’s songs were full of fun and amusement. A couple of my favourites are Adderall and Dumb – these songs have been deleted from their YouTube, iTunes and Spotify to welcome in a new era of music, but you can still find some fan uploads on YouTube.

The band used to have a unique sound to their music that could probably be described as “lazy but powerful.” Note: I say “lazy” in the best way possible because they had a great drawl both rhythmically and vocally which was just so sexy.

But now, The Heydaze have recently released their new single New Religion and by gosh, they have outdone themselves. With New Relegion and Hurt Like Hell (a single from last year), this band have take a slightly deeper and mature route with their music, switching their laid back tune for a more upbeat, present vibe.

It starts off with a synth note that borders on electro, and a smooth beat that is joined in by singer, Jesse Fink’s deep voice. The first 20 seconds is already enough to entice you, but when the build up of the pre-chorus begins, energy levels also starts to rise. Hitting the chorus, I immediately thought to myself, “This sounds like it could be a Harry Styles song if he had stuck to the newer One Direction vibe (adding a bit of a heavier rock element) when he went solo.”

I think that alone is enough to fully encapsulate the amazingness of this song. Songs like these remind me why I love pop rock.

The Heydaze is definitely a band you should not sleep on!
