MusicMafia presents Manchester alt-rock band Inego

INEGO are an alt-rock band from Manchester, named after the Spaniard in the 80's cult classic 'The Princess Bride' 

Described in one review as 'Manchester's secret power', they formed in the 2009 and established themselves within the manchester music scene, developing their music to combine elements of  Rock, Dance and Pop along with Big Chorus's to create a huge sound that didn't really fit into a specfic genre - they offer a hooky alternative take on Mancunian rock tinged with west coast american and some sunshine vibes, To help bring a little sun to the grey rainy manchester skies. 

Think somewhere in between New Order and James mixed in with some West Coast American vibes such as Foster The People or Fleetwood Mac and your starting to get the picture.

In 2014, the band hooked up with acclaimed producer and audio wizard Gavin Monaghan [Editors / Robert Plant / The Twang] at Magic Garden Studios in the West Midlands and the results were truly EPIC....

The first single the Dance Rock orientated 'Startin' Fires' was released worldwide at the end of June with the follow up single ' It's Ok'  to be released later this yet ahead of a full EP.

" Infectious riffs that swagger with a breezy nonchalance, without revelling in clich├ęd Britpop nostalgia. , “INEGO” benchmarks that breed of Indie guitar-laden bands, now been given a polished make-over, dusting off any dreary gloom and moving towards a more fresh and detangled horizon." The Manc Review

"It’s at once both fresh and nostalgic. It’s summery but at times, shimmers with a wintery brilliance that contradicts other tracks in the band’s repertoire. It’s easy to see why INEGO have caused a stir, their sound encapsulates and reinvigorates a 90s genre thought dead and buried, that’s seemingly on course for a reinvention" Ears-On.Co.Uk Music
