California rockers Manuel The Band have an impressive mix of style and genre that engages listeners across a wide spectrum of taste and preference. On “Wide Awake”, the act starts in seemingly familiar indie rock territory, but by the end, jazz, folk, and big band sounds make it a cannot miss track brimming with the creative explosion of life and sound. The vocals carry the track into a dreamy atmosphere, while the instrumentation is incredibly engaging and lively. Thankfully, the act is generating some well deserved buzz around the handful of tracks they have recently released.
If you like a more expansive and anthemic indie rock – one that lifts your soul and transports your heart elsewhere – then we cannot recommend “Wide Awake” from Manuel The Band enough. Seriously. Listen and enjoy!
