Based in rural Cambridgeshire, Collars is made up of Dan and Kane. Together they play their own brand of indie, driven by vocals, guitar and pared-back drums. Dan sings, writes and hammers a bit of synth, while Kane plays guitar and beats at the same time thanks to some self-modded drums he negotiates with his feet.
... The result?
Wholesome indie like your mama used to make! If your mama was Florence Welch and your grandparents were the White Stripes.
They release their latest single 'Hey Lizzie, Lay It On Me' digitally this month, April 23rd. The rousing track takes a look at the kind of relationship we don't often hear about in music – that between best mates.
Dan's temperate vocal is backed by a brooding synth, crashing cymbals and crisp stabs of guitar. The result is an intimate, almost claustrophobic huddle, all leading up to the energetic chant at the end.
'Hey Lizzie…' follows last year's stand-alone release 'Heart Beats', which was their first ever single. Since then the band has enjoyed airplay on numerous stations throughout the UK – including BBC Music Introducing in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and the Channel Islands.
With lockdown finally easing, Collars have a slew of live dates booked for the summer, including an EP launch party in their hometown Cambridge on 31 July , and playing The SATURDAY MAIN STAGE at The Norwich A.I.R fest 2021 !!
