2021 has so far already proved to be one of the best years for Cardiff-based Britpop band The Rotanas, even with a lack of live performances. They have released two singles, Spinner and Manic, which together have over sixty thousand streams on Spotify. They've also had spot radio plays on several radio stations including Radio X, SiriusXM and RTÉ 2FM, repeat radio plays on BBC Radio Wales, and climbed to the top on the Dutch indie chart compiled by IndieXL.

Their growing success caught the attention of the new Liverpool-based independent label, Disobedient Records, who signed them up for their next releases.

Their new single, Get The Call, is infused with '90s indie, psychedelic and shoegaze elements, with the newest member Aaron Tormey taking the creative lead on the track. He says the track, for him, is loosely about putting effort into something but questioning if it's what you're meant to be doing in life and whether it's worth the struggle. But song meanings can be interchangeable from person to person, and he adds that "personally, I like to be quite ambiguous when speaking of the inspiration and meaning behind tracks as I like to let the listener interpret it how they see fit."
