MCRAE ‘Show Me’ : Positive. Excited. Wide-eyed. Energetic.


Hailing from the mill towns scattered across both Lancashire and Yorkshire, the four-piece eschew the swaggering indie-boy Oasis imitations so often seen in such towns, in favor of something slightly subtler, more intelligent, that bridges the gap between punk, indie and pop effortlessly.

“’Show Me’ touches on the paths someone may choose when coming of age in a northern English town and the frustrations that can arise from that,” explained the band. “Lots of people move in search of somewhere ‘better’ or at least busier, but often end up returning because it’s not quite as expected. Most don’t even know what they’re looking for. Show me addresses the disparity between what we need and what we think we need.”

Jake Mcrae, Aidan Reece, Jordan Davies and Joe Mcrae do their thang in ‘Show me’. And with the mic in their hand and rhythm in their hearts, they tackle the feelings and vibes of the past. From there, sprouts the conditions to follow their ambitions, to splurge on the future and of its possibilities.

Positive. Excited. Wide-eyed. Energetic. That’s what MCRAE represents.
