East York - Single Review: Outsiders

08 Nov 2020 // A review by Kerry Monaghan

Comprised of three Kiwis, Zane Rosanoski (drums) Tarquin Keys (vocals) Daz Coppins (guitar), and a Canadian, Eric Boucher (bass). Formed in Melbourne during pandemic times comes the Rock quartet, East York.

During the first wave of lockdowns in April 2020 ideas and music had started to form. Before long, with the help of the internet, East York had begun and this is their debut single, Outsiders.

As a tribute to those who walk a different path to societal norms, Outsiders is a journey of self-discovery according to vocalist, Tarquin Keys.

From the outset it erupts with a ferocious build up combined with driving guitar riffs, split second guttural screams and followed swiftly by Tarquin’s strong and melodic tone. It’s catchy as hell, has great lyricism and even with its flip flop between straight rock and scream core metal vocals and riffs, it is incredibly uplifting from start to finish.

It’s a strong and bold single to release as their first single and I think they’ve nailed it.

As a taste of what is to come, there is exciting times ahead and I can’t wait to see what unfolds.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )
 

About East York

From a normal start to a pandemic release, East York brings you their first ever single Outsiders.

It’s April 2020, the world is in lockdown and Zane has been sending drum ideas to Daz to write riffs over and now they have a batch of banging instrumentals, ready for collaboration. We see Eric move to Melbourne from Toronto Canada, reconnecting with Daz after 10 years apart. Finally the internet brings Tarquin into the mix, who demo’s three songs and fires them back. Everyone agrees "let’s do this thing" and East York is born.

When talking about the new track, Tarquin (Vocalist) says: "Outsiders is a tribute to the ones who walk on the outside of society. It speaks to those of us who play the game of life on our own terms and, who don't care to swim with the tide." It is always a journey of discovery when starting a new band but East York have found their grounding in Rock.
