As ever, Travelbiz is delighted to bring you good news, particularly in these dark and uncertain Covid times, but, there’s always light in that long tunnel and this one certainly hits the right note!

 

Our good friend, Michael Rafferty from DuffyRafferty.com tells me that Belfast Indie rock band, The Minnows, is launching a brand new single from their forthcoming new album (due out in January). Michael himself is singer songwriter and The Minnows band members include Paul Maynes, Kevin Carson and Stephen O’Sullivan. What a line up. These guys bring melodic harmony and haunting lyrics to stratospheric levels. Up to recently Michael had been broadcasting every day bringing us his favourite songs over the past number of years which was a welcome distraction as we battle our way through the pandemic and resulting lockdowns.

 

‘What was I supposed to do’ is the cracking new single from The Minnows and, frankly, what is one supposed to do except listen and love it! ‘What was I supposed to do’ is a lingering and pretty heart-breaking tale of a failed relationship and, quoting from the band’s press release, “lovingly overlaid with hypnotic chiming guitars, classic keyboards and a gut-wrenching, wailing harmonica, building to an epic rocking crescendo incorporating The Minnows trademark harmonies”. Whew! Couldn’t have put it better myself.

 

This wonderful song is available to stream and download on all digital platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and Bandcamp. I’ve just watched the video on YouTube and I guarantee you’ll be hooked (line and sinker!). I reckon The Minnows are set to become big fish, so cast your net and drift away on a mesmerising melody.
