The Manly Hero
Theyâ€™re all boys, and theyâ€™re in a band, but they collectively flinch if you call them a â€œboy band.â€ Theyâ€™re young, cute, and still in high school, but the four members of www.themanlyhero.com" class="wiki wikinew text-danger tips">The Manly Hero are also talented, hard-working musicians and instrumentalists who have studied under and performed with some of the best in the music industry.
After spending a full year writing, recording, and mixing their debut album, The Manly Hero has released three singles in January 2021 and will continue to roll out singles and accompanying videos on alternate Fridays in the months to come. Itâ€™s the culmination of what they envisioned in late 2019 to be the â€œ20 songs in 2020â€ project.
Produced by Dan Hannon, whose production credits include Manchester Orchestra and Paris Jackson, The Manly Heroâ€™s debut work has been described as â€œa visceral, yet refined, melange of groovy, edgy, stank-facey, rhythm and soul-funkful sound that says, weâ€™re gonna side-step the mainstream, so we can jump out in front of it.â€™â€
The first three singles — â€œCominâ€™ After You,â€ â€œGotta Get Back Your Love,â€ and â€œU & Meâ€ — have already found success just in the first few weeks, with over 25,000 streams of the first three songs and almost 20,000 YouTube views of the first two videos. The music is available on all platforms, including https://open.spotify.com/artist/59TKVtHelkhDpRqKfRVvuP?si=795zgOX9SICiIm8suJq25w " class="wiki wikinew text-danger tips">Spotify and https://music.apple.com/us/artist/the-manly-hero/1545708913" class="wiki wikinew text-danger tips">Apple Music. New songs will be added to The Manly Heroâ€™s playlist over the coming weeks, with videos accompanying each song posted to The Manly Heroâ€™s https://www.youtube.com/c/TheManlyHero " class="wiki wikinew text-danger tips">YouTube channel.
