New Artist Of The Day: The Whereabouts
The effortless personification of retro cool...
SUBBA-CULTCHA.COM SAYS: "The Whereabouts are teenagers, the mod youth, defined in the narrow cut of their tailored suits they are the poster boys for the approaching generation. They play outstanding R&B influenced catchy rock/pop that is confident enough to emulate the era it traditionally belongs to yet sharp enough to cast a modernity of it’s own competence should there ever be some doubt that it may not. Their youthful energy conjures a bombastic 60’s pop sound consistent with British Invasion bands like The Merseybeats while their deeper edged bluesy guitar work is an endearing nod to their Rolling Stones and Chuck Berry influences. They resonate with a definite profoundness and are remarkably perceptive to the aesthetics of the genre they operate in. They’ve already attracted the attention of the industry with last years rollicking ‘TwentyThirtyThree’ EP and the hook laden single ‘Emmalene’. An extensive gig schedule including a support slot with American band Daughtry earned them play-listing on America’s leading radio station KROQ…. A hugely significant indication of their merit surely. Further grooviness continues with tremendous follow up single ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’. The world, it would seem, might one day be theirs!"
