Let’s be real: When you hear the phrase “teenage band from the UK,” you probably cringe. If that’s the case, you haven’t heard of The Strypes yet, one of our favorite new artists. The Strypes have a sound way beyond their years, drawing influences from The Yardbirds, The Rolling Stones and The Animals. It’s hard to believe they are all under 18 years old. Their debut album, “Snapshot,” is available on iTunes now, and they just released the “4 Track Mind” EP in the US today. Listen to their track “Hard To Say No” below.
We unfortunately missed their sold-out album release show in NYC last March, which Rolling Stone raved about. Since the talented quartet hail from the Ireland, we weren’t sure when we’d get a chance to see them again. Lucky for us (and you) they are back in the US this week for a string of shows, including stops at the 9:30 Club and Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Check out the dates below and don’t miss your chance to see them!
