Single Review: New York ~ CONFLARE

Admittedly, the small West Yorkshire town of Castleford isn't renowned for its musical heritage... but ambitious pop-rock quartet Conflare look set to change that once and for all. The band, made up of Toby Hanmore, Rob Hawkins, Sam Wilkinson and Ethan Bradley, already have four stellar studio releases under their belt in the form of a self titled 2015 EP, as well as three gritty single releases 'Real', 'Conquistador' and 'Tempted'. Having frequented some of Leeds' finest music venues, the quartet are set to round off 2017 in spectacular fashion with a huge upcoming headline show at Belgrave Music Hall at the end of this month and the release of a new single, the deliciously infectious 'New York'.


A sterling guitar introduction leads into what is undoubtedly an intense and atmosphere soaked track, packed full of emotive lyricism, brisk melodics and an impressively confident vocal brio. Conflare really have mastered their art perfectly, and have such an apt, effortless ability for indie-rock songcraft.

Conflare release 'The New York EP' on the 29th of November. Listen to 'New York' here
