New Album ‘Spitting Image’ Out Today
Watch Video For ‘Great Expectations’
Today, the widely celebrated Irish four-piece The Strypes release their third studio album alongside the video for new track ‘Great Expectations’.
‘Spitting Image’, which has been produced by Ethan Johns, has been hailed a fabulously diverse record that effortlessly transcends the band’s roots in adrenalized R&B, whilst perfectly capturing the bands renowned on-stage fizzing chemistry.
Like its predecessors ‘Oh Cruel World’ and current single ‘Behind Closed Doors’, ‘Great Expectations’ sees The Strypes doing what exactly what they do best – thrilling drum rolls and rousing guitar riffs that perfectly echo the vibe of Irish rock icon Phil Lynott.
