Taken from their recently released self-titled EP, Be My Lady is a stirring and magnetic lure into the melodic prowess of UK band Conquer Rio. The new single is a blaze of pop rock as infectious as it is evocatively impassioned in sound and voice, the kind of back-up to an initial introduction sure to round up another horde of eager and happy fans.
The seeds of the band in many ways go back to “a pair of children meeting in nursery for the first time.” They were Tom Jordan and Lewis Melia who linked up years later to form Conquer Rio in 2011. Taking inspirations from the likes of Biffy Clyro, Twin Atlantic, The Script, The Killers, Foo Fighters, and Arcade Fire into their own invention, the Warrington hailing band has increasingly drawn attention and support over the past years. The playing of the Etihad Stadium Magic Weekend twice, the Old Trafford Super League Grand Final in 2013, and supporting Scouting for Girls at the Warrington Music Festival are amongst their highlights to date; the release of their EP and now new single sure to rank up there as moments sparking new spotlights upon the band.
With a line-up of Jake Bate, Dan Cobley, and Ben Roberts alongside Jordan and Melia, Conquer Rio swiftly have ears enticed through a great opening bassline, its throaty lure soon joined by a spicy blues web cast by guitars and emotively strong vocals. The potent start only intensifies through a quickly upon ears rousing chorus, its infectiousness spreading to other elements of the song as things blossom into familiar yet unpredictable temptation. From a gentle but inviting start the track continues to grow and build towards a tenaciously anthemic roar of a climax, and fair to say if early on only ears are involved in the song by its end Be My Lady has the whole body rocking and roaring along.
It is true that there are no major surprises within Be My Lady but also that Conquer Rio offer a track which has their creative character all over it, attributes only confirmed by the EP spawning the single. This is a band heading towards another busy year in 2016 and with songs like Be My Lady a very successful one.
