Release New Single “Move On”

South West London risers Slaney Bay share their first material of 2023 with cathartic new effort ‘Move On’, which is out now. The track comes ahead of a host of festival appearances this summer.

Hotly tipped by the likes of Dork (Hype List 2023) and Under The Radar (23 for 2023), the indie newcomers’ have made quite the early impression following the release of debut EP  ‘A Life Worth Living’ late last year – a coming-of-age diary, in which they explore the hardships of growing up. The band’s raw and infectious energy on EP singles ‘I Could Love You Better’ and ‘LS6’ secured significant support across the press landscape (Billboard, The Independent, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit, Under The Radar) and multiple spins on the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Jack Saunders). 

Already making an name from themselves on the live circuit (with notable support slots for Sinead O’Brien, Bleach Lab, Coach Party and Low Hummer) the band are now gearing up for a busy year with further new music in the pipeline and various festival slots around the UK, including The Great Escape, Gold Sounds and Dot To Dot, amongst many others.

Detailing their single release, frontwoman Cait Whitley explained: “‘Move On’ was written as a promise to push myself forwards. I felt like I was stuck…I was still upset about the same person, situation and mistakes as I was a year ago. And that left zero space for anything new to happen. I’d stopped progressing. I needed to switch into a tough love mentality. Ordering myself to move on, even if it was painful. Just put one foot in front of the other”.

Slaney Bay have this bright career ahead, every track they’ve released to date proudly captures the immense songwriting skills of this outfit and this voice that must be heard.

“Move On” is a masterpiece, a deeply enthralling and moving release that affects the audience with the journey of this release. Swirling melancholia and intimate lyrics, this volatile vision ultimately exudes this strong unity of all musicians. The hard-hitting instrumentation gathers momentum and continues to weave such complex layers into the soundscape. The guitar tonality the sustained bass/depth to the release transmits the track to deeper impressions. Throughout the release, the audience embraces the hauntingly beautiful vocal exploration, that devours this expressive harmonic direction.

For over 3 minutes, Slaney Bay gives it all for substantial is the path their sound emits successfully.

Slaney Bay’s ‘Move On’ is out now and available on all digital platforms here.
