THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE TRACK: The Impossibility – A little slower to their usual rockier style, The Impossibility pulls listeners in from the get-go with the melodic riffs and infectious lyrics – a love story with a twist if you will. The track shows a different side to the band that we haven’t seen before showing the variety in style, Layaway have.
WHY ARE WE DIGGIN THEM? Electrifying drum beats, powerful vocals and heavy guitar riffs, Layaway are key players in the local rock scene. They write the type of music that was made to be played in a live setting in a crowd full of people. Expect flying pints and a whole lot of moshing – wouldn’t be a proper gig without it eh?!
THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE LYRICS: Close Your Eyes- ‘You know it won’t be long, I’m holding whatever, you can hold on.’
