The Step's music is a mix of introspective lyrics, bittersweet echoing blends of post-Brit Pop and and the Italian alternative background. Passionate pianos, jittery guitars, dynamic drums and romantic lyrics are infused with insecurity and doubts juxtaposed with the will to rise and make it, each track is a personal statement of intent.
 

The Single 'Stay Awake' was written and produced by The Step, mixed by Liam Nolan (Adele '25') and mastered by Andy  "Hippy" Baldwin at Metropolis Studio in London.

 

"A sensitive and thoughtful approach to life, love and insecurity in a way many of us can relate to." London Unsigned
 

"Seriously, It's been too long since we heard something this promising."  
Mad Hatter Review
 

"Incredibly catchy guitar-driven tunes! Definitely worth a Lot of spins!"

"Their voices empower the atmosphere more-so than the energy of their guitars; the synchronised transcendence of their vocals and their instruments demonstrates the passion that lies behind The Step, a true meeting of mind and soul."
T'Hud – Huddersfield Students Magazine
 

"As they head off for another interview the impression they've left remains strong in the air, igniting energy and excitement among all."
The Orbital Magazine, Royal Holloway University of London
