ESTRONS craft that elusive breed of barbed hook, guaranteed to leave you dangling on their line and dancing to their tune.
Their Bio informs;
ESTRONS are an Alternative Rock band based in Cardiff, UK.
Fronted by Canadian-Swede Taliesyn Kallström, they bring punchy melodic songs, combined with powerful vocals, loud raw guitars and busy beats.
Meaning ‘ALIENS’ in their native Welsh, the main premise was to gather a band of general misfits and outcasts that never quite belonged to any country or nationality, being of mixed and international ancestry. The create honest, raw and energetic music for anybody who want to hear something a bit different.
As the, a badge of friendship page attests, “Single Make A Man not only presents the band’s dynamic indie sound, the sentiment behind the song is just as strong and meaningful with the idea of female objectification turned on its head. “It’s the story of a heterosexual female’s battle between desiring a man, whilst simultaneously finding herself having little respect for his self-important ego and misogynistic attitude towards women. She retaliates by objectifying him herself,” explains singer Taliesyn Källström. In a time when female pop stars are shouting out about the same subject matter yet presenting themselves as sex objects regardless, Estrons are the real deal. They write about sexual dominance, belonging, divorce, self doubt… themes that matter to them and they write about them with passion and truth. They sing in English and Welsh, sometimes flitting between the two depending on the feel of the song.”
‘Make A Man’ is released via Gofod Records Ltd on 4th December 2015.
