Single Review – The Strypes – Get Into It

The Blues Rock quartet from Cavan, Ireland broke through at a very young age and showed great maturity and taste with their 60’s style debut album Snapshot which was a more than solid debut for a band still in their mid-teens and if anything their range and depth of influences was just as impressive as their sound from which these influences were the foundation. Now at the grand old ages of 17-19, the band are to release their second studio album with Little Victories on July 24th. One of the lead singles from it is ‘Get Into It’ and on first impressions it suggests a slightly heavier shift in their sound akin to QOTSA, Monkeys and Royal Blood and many more. They maintain their vocal harmonies and McClorey’s vocals have clearly developed well, holding sustained melodies with ease and the sound is more mature if not a little familiar which is a little bit of a let down. Having said that, it is still delivered and produced to a standard better than most of their contemporaries with this sound, but let’s hope there more vision from the boys from Cavan with the rest of their upcoming album.
