Hey Sholay are five musicians/filmakers/artists from Sheffield/Leeds who are releasing their new single Burning on June 11th.
Their CV includes a BBC 6Music award for ‘Must-see Band of The Summer 2012′, a tour with Crystal Antlers, supporting Dry The River at Koko at the NME Awards show and lots BBC Radio 1 love from the likes of Scott Mills, Greg James and Fearne Cotton.
Burning was mastered in the USA by Don Grossinger, a man who knows his way around the levels of Flaming Lips, Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd. Released through Fierce Panda, it will be the first single from their upcoming album ((O)). The Independent described Hey Sholay‘s sounds as ‘How Foals might sound if they ditched the pretentious math-rock and made a pop record. Smart, off-kilter and interesting’. With shades of Animal Collective and The Wombats Burning is the perfect summer tune.
