[sg_popup id=”2″ event=”onload”][/sg_popup]NY5HA present an exploding debut with self-assertive track ‘Ignorant Infatuation’.
I first stumbled across NY5HA during a college showcase gig last year. Although roughly twenty great bands performed that night, it was NY5HA’s live set which really blew me away. What made the performance so special was the connection between all seven band members, the tight musicality and of course the lead vocalist Naoise O’Brien’s onstage presence. It was a performance that made me want more and led me to follow their journey.
‘Ignorant Infatuation’ is based upon the attraction of another human being. The idea of liking someone but unsure whether they like you back. Sure, we’ve all been there before, which makes the lyrical matter all the more interesting. What makes the track so authentic is the powerful vocals of Naoise that demand to be heard. Her voice is aggressive, fierce and heartfelt all at the same time.
In general, the instrumentation supporting the vocal melodies really make the songwriting come to life. Beefy guitar riffs and alt-pop synth lines combine to produce an emotive and energetic performance. What struck me the most was the repetitive nature of the bridge, “Ignorant infatuation fills me up but never full”. All band members collaborate to basically form a crescendo of dreams. The build-up of tension is finally released with Naoise’s lead vocal absolutely soaring through this wall of sound.
In general, ‘Ignorant Infatuation’ is a passionately tough song which would empower anyone who gives it a listen. Check it out below now.
