Artist to Watch: The Strypes

You never know where you’ll find you new favorite band: it could be on YouTube, from a commercial you looked up on Shazam, busking in a park, opening for your favorite artist.   In this case, it was reading an ad for BBM in Rolling Stone that led us to The Strypes.

Ross Farrelly, Josh McClorey, Pete O’Hanlon and Evan Walsh make up the quartet, hailing from Cavan, Ireland.  Their debut album, Snapshot, was released last month in the US.  It’s hard to believe they are only 16-18 years old, as they have a sound way beyond their years, drawing influences from The Yardbirds, The Rolling Stones and The Animals.   They also remind us of more contemporary acts like The Vines and Arctic Monkeys.

They just wrapped up a US tour, which included a sold out stop at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman, and a rave review from Rolling Stone.  We unfortunately missed seeing them this time around, so we’re hoping they’ll be back stateside soon!
