UK Artist of the Week

ESTRONS have just exploded onto the indie music scene with their ferocious new single “Make a Man,” which is out on December 4th via Gofod Records Ltd.

“Make a Man” is everything you want from a punk-infused indie belter—anthemic guitar riffs, pounding drums and Taliesyn Källström’s incredibly powerful vocal delivery taking centre stage.

Speaking about the track, Taliesyn explains, “It’s the story of a heterosexual female’s battle between desiring a man, whilst simultaneously finding herself having little respect for his self-important ego and misogynistic attitude towards women. She retaliates by objectifying him herself.” ESTRONS want to break the boundaries of what popular music is about, dealing with issues of sexual dominance, belonging, and self-doubt in their songs.

The band met randomly on a beach in Aberystwyth in 2012 and since then, the line up seems to change with the tide. Core members Taliesyn Källström (vocals) and Rhodri Daniel (guitar) remain the anchors of the group, but ESTRONS generally call themselves a “collection of people who come and go, all strangers who have one sole purpose and common denominator—to make great music that says something.”

Having already played Swn Festival, Festival No. 6, and having gained support from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, ESTRONS are well on their way to becoming the next big thing—and it looks as though 2016 could well be their year.
