Single Review: Tempted ~ CONFLARE

Conflare are the Castleford based pop-rock powerhouse made up of Toby Hanmore, Ethan Bradley, Sam Wilkinson and Dan Watson. Since their formation, the band have appeared at some of Yorkshires' finest venues, the likes of the O2 Academy in Leeds and Wakefields' Theatre Royal, and have become known and loved for their high powered and dynamic live performances. The quartet released their debut EP in 2015, followed by a felicitous single release last year in the form of the brilliant 'Real'. Having already more than proved themselves as one of the most exciting up and coming bands on the block, Conflare are back with their strongest work to date, brand new single 'Tempted'.

These guys were the first band to ever ask me to review their music when I started this blog, so it's really great to see how far they've come since then; 'Tempted' is a big rock song, packed full of sensational riffs and bass licks, all further accentuated by Tobys' gritty and copiously evocative vocal styling. The intensity and deliverance of the lyricism coalesce perfectly with the moody, atmosphere soaked instrumentation, and this track emits a real sense of professionalism. Conflare definitely have a lot to offer, and 'Tempted' is resonating proof of their flair for raw and expressive songcraft. 

'Tempted' is out now. Listen below:
