Commenting on ‘Little Victories‘, The Strypes‘ guitarist Josh McClorey said: “It’s just a progression. It’s like comparing what we were listening to when we were 12 and 13 to what we’re listening to now. It’s obviously going to be different.”
The Strypes are 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).
The Strypes have spent the past 2 years launching their explosive R&B assault on the clubs and festivals of Ireland, the UK and Europe, viciously hammering out a no-nonsense blues repertoire drawing from the songbooks of Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Slim Harpo and more with the passion and venom of British blues groups such as Dr. Feelgood, The Yardbirds, The Rolling Stones and The Animals.
Having already been met with critical acclaim from greats such as Jeff Beck, Dave Grohl and Elton John as well as been tipped by NME as the No. 1 new band to watch (back in 2014), it seems things can only get better and better for The Strypes in 2015, so best you catch them for one of their intimate performances before they take on another bold one (such as Slane Castle)!
“The most thrilling live band in the UK” – Q
“Feverishly intense, raw and compelling” – The Independent
“The Strypes are too good to be ignored” – NME
