the strypes - little victories

The Strypes are back with the new album ‘Little Victories’ which sees the young Irish fourpiece take an ever confident step forward from their acclaimed debut album ‘Snapshot’. The last 2 years have seen Josh, Ross, Evan and Pete tour around Europe, Australia, Japan and the US before returning to the studio to work on new music. The new album features the brand new single ‘Get Into It’ as well as live show favourites ‘Eighty-Four’ and ‘Scumbag City’. The double sided record comes in full colour gatefold packaging on 180-grm vinyl as well as a mintpack deluxe album which comes with a 12 page full colour booklet and 4 extra tracks. See track listings below.

From Get Into It’s dirty bass groove and the absinthe-stained psychedelic waltz of (I Wanna Be Your) Everyday to the joyous New Wave rush of closer Scumbag City Blues, it’s a record that swerves through multiple twists and turns with a scope almost unthinkable two years previously. Lift up the bonnet of Little Victories and you’ll find rolling – almost heavy metal like – twin riffing (I Need To Be Your Only), careering punk pop (Best Man), Kinks-esque observations (Cruel Brunette) and deliciously sleazy swamp rock (Status Update) all whirring thrillingly away.

We’ve grown up, musically,” says lead guitarist Josh McClorey. “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.”

It’s different for sure, but it also gets right to the heart of what makes these four people such a great band. Get ready to meet the real Strypes.
