Video: The Strypes – What A Shame
Are you ready to feel equally old and untalented? Introducing The Strypes. The Irish four-piece are causing a massive worldwide stir with their take on the original British Invasion and Blues/Rock boom of the 1960’s. Oh, and their ages range from 15-17. Fifteen! We saw them this year at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival and the line that snaked down the street outside the venue was insane. Their show didn’t disappoint either. Suited up, they belted out rock n roll, blues and RnB in the traditional sense with astonishing control and confidence.
Entering the year on the back of praise for ‘Young, Gifted & Blue’ their first release of vintage R’n’B covers, The Strypes are set to crown their phenomenal rise with the release of their debut full-length album – ‘Snapshot’, available late September.
The Strypes will extend their reach even further this year opening for Blur and are set to embark on a stadium tour of the UK and Europe with the Arctic Monkeys. Get on board early and join fans like Elton John and Dave Grohl. These kids are gonna be MASSIVE.
