The band have blended their love of classic two-tone ska music with indie influences, creating a unique and energetic sound that is fun and relatable, appealing to a cross section of music lovers, festival goers and casual listeners alike.

It’s Just The Way perfectly captures The Begbies high octane sound as massive brass hooks and off-beat guitar is mixed with raw, uplifting vocals and socially challenging lyrics highlighting the hypocrisy and selfishness of the political classes who’s indiscretions are dealt with differently to the masses.

“The ‘skindie’ band are back with a new song ‘Stay Young // Stay Free’ that loosens of the ska influence just a little bit. The saxophone packs itself hidden under the indie chimes and ‘stay young and free’ chanting. But what the track does emphasise is a more modernised, perhaps revolutionary, side to ska – conveying a serious mood to what is conventionally a uplifting genre.”

“The new addition of the brass section is significant, as it adds a richness that allows the band’s sound to feel more expressive than it did before, however, the single is certainly not just an infectious ska romp – as hidden under the jovial beat is a seriously charged political message.”
