HAYES & Y
Hayes & Y are an exciting new band on the Manchester / London indie rock scene. Originally from Bulgaria, they have recently moved to UK in the hope of building on their success in their home country.
The Salford-based four piece has been affected by the pandemic as much as anyone else, facing a disappointing halt to their live performances and dealing with the neglect of support for the creative industries. Overcoming this, the band have channelled their energy into creating new music instead; ‘The Times’ is the first of three singles set to be released over the coming months.
Having supported the likes of Kasabian and The Subways, this band is gaining quite a reputation for itself, and past sponsorship deals from H&M and Heineken show that they’re not without influential fans either.

Hayes & Y – Empty Orchestra
Track- THE TIMES
With phasered soundscapes and layered vocals dancing among the funkier elements of the music, ‘The Times’ feels like a tasteful hybrid between Vulfpeck and MGMT – a respectable level of influence can be heard without crossing the line and sounding like a rip-off.
‘The Times’ is a song I can’t wait to have a dance to post-lockdown, and I’m sure many will be in agreement. With this being the first of their trilogy of upcoming releases, the bar has been set seriously high for Hayes & Y. RGM 2021
