THE STRYPES - Young, Gifted And Blue E.P (2012)

THE STRYPES - Young, Gifted And Blue E.P
2012 (7” EP Heavy Soul)

I’m sick and tired all these years of Boy-Bands, of Girl-Bands, playing garbage music… Here’s 4 talented promising young men (really young men, just 14 years old) that are going to set the whole world on fire! Everything started back in November 2010 with an appearance at the ‘Late Late Toy Show’. A digital single followed (their interpretation of the Beatles “You can Do That”, released July 22nd 2011). Hailing from Cavan, Ireland, The Strypes are the most fresh and exciting ‘new thing’ to emerge from Europe! The title of their debut EP release, describes it all. Young, Gifted and Blue! Add a really mature coolness, a hipster Mod attitude, an uncontrolled charm, a 60s R n’ B feeling, a true devotion to the Blues and you’ll get the picture! So, it’s Ross Farrelly on Lead Vocals/Percussion/Harmonica, Josh McClorey on Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals/Keyboards, Pete O'Hanlon on Bass/Harmonica/Backing Vocals and Evan Walsh on Drums. Catch their names, the whole global musical community will talk about them in the direct future. And the future is all theirs! A Brilliant EP by Heavy Soul Records, a tribute to W. Dixon “You Can’t Judge A Book”, J. Moore “I Got Love If You Want It”, Billy Boy Arnold “I Wish You Would” and the holy triad Holland, Dozier, Holland “Leavin’ Here”. Listen to these tracks, and instantly, pictures of a young Van Morrison, or a young Eric Burdon, or a young Eric Clapton, unwillingly come to mind! What a wonderful feeling I get by listening over and over again. I really don’t care if it’ll take them a long time to introduce their own music, their own compositions. I just don’t care. I enjoy listening to their covers. After all, they won my anticipation for original music and they deserve it! Period! Meet The Strypes! They Got Their Mojos Working! And they do it Bloody Well! A wonderful appetizer! TimeLord Michalis
