|Snapshot from the Strypes|
Have you heard of the Strypes yet? Well, in short, they're putting Co. Cavan on the map. A little longer, they're four ridiculously young and talented lads—guitarist/vocalist Josh McClorey, Bassist/harmonica-player Pete O’Hanlon, drummer Evan Walsh, and lead vocalist /frontman Ross Farrelly—from Cavan with a hard-driving sound that suggests the Beatles/the Ramones/the White Stripes. They write their own songs (as well as playing covers, very well btw), play their own instruments (with confidence, swagger, and actual talent), and have been earning a following the good old fashioned way—by playing the road and rocking hard. They're gathering all sorts of buzz on this side of the Atlantic and I can't wait to see what they do with it.
I love that the last thing you notice about these boys is their looks. So refreshing.
