Over the last three years or so, Body Type have emerged as one of our favourite newcomers within the indie-pop realm, with their consistently on-point lyricism and their versatile, guitar-charged instrumentals holding strong as they’ve grown and matured as a band. While their debut single “Ludlow”back in 2016 was one that turned heads, their debut EP – last year’s Body Type– was one that solidified their place within our scene, bringing a particular energy and flavour that has really yet to be fleshed out from other musicians, giving them a unique lane to shine. Their latest single Stingray looks ahead at another triumphant year bound for the four-piece, announcing that their forthcoming second EP, the aptly-titled EP2, will arrive via Partisan Records / Inertia Music, while showcasing what to expect from the five-track release. 

Stingray is a breezy slice of indie-pop-rock that Body Type have come to champion over the last few years, with Sophie’s vocal flowing alongside the single’s instrumental which rises, falls and swirls with this playful, light-hearted feel. “This is a song about observing my friends being stuck in relationship ruts and trying to shake them out of it, reminding them of their power to sting and swim away gracefully.
