Pioneers, an indie-rock four-piece, are marking themselves as a band to keep your eye on with their upcoming single ‘I Don’t Think I’ve Changed’.
The group currently have a bare-boned discography, with only three tracks for fans to enjoy. However, their fan base seems anything but scarce: the group can boast of three sold out headline shows in their hometown of Southampton.
‘Youth’ is a more recent release; a revival of their past sound with clear vocals that complement the tone of the piece. There’s an unrelenting energy to their debut single, ‘Take Time’, that continues to play in this years’ releases.
Pioneers are set to release a fourth track to join their family on the 30th of this month – ‘I Don’t Think I’ve Changed’; a single which heavily hints towards their multiple influences, whilst maintaining a fresh approach.
Their influences are almost exclusively British indie-rock artists; the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and DMA’s. However, the vocals aren’t quite Jake Bugg or Jake Bugg dupes, and the guitars don’t try to recreate those of Catfish and the Bottlemen. So far, each track that the group releases shows us further and further the individual, unique identity of the band.
The group themselves describe the track as one that reminisces on their teenage adolescence, whilst struggling to come to terms with change. This conflict is clearly present in the lamenting lyrics and disillusioned tone: it’s a topic that many can relate to.
As far as emerging indie talent goes, Southampton quartet Pioneers seem to be leading the way. ‘I Don’t Think I’ve Changed’ is an impressive demand to be noticed by the band, and will hopefully be followed by more similar releases.
