Discovery: Route 500

Route 500 are a Brighton based indie rock and alternative folk group who have caught my attention through the second single from their upcoming debut album. It’s called Not Today.

Not Today is a gentle track for those of us with soft souls. The tempo plods along, brought to life through textures of electric and acoustic guitar. The vocals are expressively mournful, creating the sonic equivalent of the uncomfortable parts of life that are difficult to engage with.

Fans of Radiohead and Jeff Buckley will find a lot to love about Route 500’s music. I personally can’t wait to hear more of it. You can check out Not Today below.
