The Strypes (IE)

The Strypes, recently tipped by the NME as one of the ‘Most Exciting New Bands Of 2013’, are a 4-piece rhythm and blues band hailing from Cavan, Ireland. Formed in 2011 by Ross Farrelly (lead vocals/harmonica), Josh McClorey (lead guitar/vocals), Pete O’Hanlon (bass guitar/harmonica) and Evan Walsh (drums) they have a raw explosive sound that harks back to the glory days of garage rock and rhythm & blues with a distinctive youthful modern twist.

“In a musical climate where everything is loop pedals and sampling, sometimes it’s nice to say ‘fuck off’ to all of that and bring everything back to basics, which this tune does brilliantly” – Sabotage Times.
