Introducing The Protagonists, a four-piece rock band from the Liverpool area, who describe themselves as simply an honest, hardworking, energetic indie rock band.

Since forming they have been hard at it, gigging throughout the North West  and are proud to declare they have played alongside acts such as previously featured on unZined and  former Catfish and the Bottlemen lead guitarist Billy Bibby, Helsinki, and The Jackobins.

They have also been busy recording new songs and have invited unZined to give our opinion on their latest Do you Recall. Previously, their songs have been played on BBC Radio Merseyside for BBC Introducing and their release ‘Blue Light’ was played on Coronation Street and has also been played on BBC Radio Merseyside for BBC Introducing. Seeing the notice their songs have been receiving in the past, I’m eager to have a listen to their latest offerings.


The song starts out with a fresh clean guitar sound and a lively harmony, already its piqued my interest. It continues with an interesting drum beat, which steadily builds up to a catchy chorus. This songs raw indie at its best. Not over complicated, but all that you’d want in a great indie tune, great drum beat which carries you through the song, vocals you can sing along to. Overall, its a catchy sing a long kind of song which has a summer vibe to it. The Protagonists, judging from their  past songs and efforts, are a band who know which music direction they are heading towards and it will be great to see how they develop in the future.
