The debut EP ‘Start’ from pop punk band Amy Can Flyy is due out on 15th October via Horsepower. These guys are pretty popular with over 3 million hits on you tube, loads of high profile supporting rolls,and seven national tours already to their name. They may have nailed the American pop punk theme following in the steps of bands such as Fallout Boy but they are in fact from Bournemouth and formed back in 2008. They are Ben Elkins-Green on vocals, Chris Smith on guitar, Tom MacLeod on bass, and Fuzz on drums.
They have an almost excessive amount of cheerfulness, a bit like candy floss with instruments. Their single ‘You can’t Stop Us Now’ is perhaps the most light hearted “stuff you” I’ve ever heard but has a certain appeal if only for the catchy guitar rhythms. Ok so they’re a little superficial, so what?They’re young and good looking and having a lot of fun. Sometimes things can get a little serious and these guys are the perfect remedy.
The boys will be on tour in the UK this November in London –O2 Academy Islington (7th), Manchester – Roadhouse (8th),Glasgow – Classic Grand (9th), Newcastle – Space bar (10th),Sheffield – O2 Academy2 (11th), Birmingham – Ballroom (12th),Bristol – The Croft (13th), and Southampton – Joiners (15th). 6.5/10
