more info
Hailing from a sleepy town on the south coast of Englandshire and now residing in London
The Manatees consist of schoolfriends Jay
Tyler and Miller and some unfeasibly large trousers. Together they combine hip-hop samples
funk-driven bass lines
sparkling guitars and candid lyrics to carve out their own soundscape within modern rock
as evinced by new single 'Better Way To Think Of It'
released on fierce panda on July 19th. It lasts for precisely three minutes and zero seconds. This makes us even more unfeasibly happy.

"‘Better Way to Think of It’ delves into the complexities experienced in a relationship strained by distance
" The Manatees muse. "MGMT-inspired bass synths and glitchy vocoder fill the verses
with the choruses dedicated to the hook that lays at the heart of the song. It’s a guilty pleasure for us
a modern indie ear worm that doesn’t take itself too seriously. A much needed respite after a debut EP which was introspective and darker in tone."

This much is true - that 'Dream In Colour' EP came out in April and openly tackled the anxieties of finding your feet in an ever-changing world
emphasising the desperateness and loneliness of growing up. Yet even this couldn't quell The Manatees' hyper-popping genre-hopping essence rare
inspiring sold out shows at The Victoria and Sebright Arms and warranting a Jack Saunders Next Wave interview on BBC Radio One as well as much love from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6music.

Next up comes a second big-hearted EP release on the panda and these big-trousered live shows here:
