Hailing from the streets of South London, UK, brothers Mensah (lead vocals and guitar) and Kwame Hart (bass) got together with Marcus Harris (drums) and Cujoe Ryan (guitar) to form Baytrees. Blending hip hop with pop and heavy rock, this Briston-based quartet is building a brand new breed of music. Combining their collective skills as musicians (some having performed with The Sex Pistols, Rolling Stones and Kano), Baytrees is a breath of fresh air into the London rock scene. The latest addition to their discography is the single ‘Sunlight’.
Instead of sitting back and facing the Covid-19 lockdowns with a sulky face, Baytrees opt to use this experience as creative material…at least, that’s the way we’re looking at it. Seemingly an anthem to coping with self-isolation, ‘Sunlight’ does not dwell on a dismal present but looks forward to reuniting with friends, dancing, drinking and soaking up life.
An addictive track with a ton of attitude, ‘Sunlight’ is lively, feisty and very energetic. The combination of heavy guitars, pounding drums and vivacious hip hop meets James Brown vocals transports you to a sensational world filled with bright lights and thundering awesomeness. If this doesn’t have your head bopping, spirit souring and dancing on tables, then I don’t know what will.
“‘Sunlight’ is a song about people coming together, dancing, drinking and living life with a new sense of appreciation.” – Baytrees on ‘Sunlight’
