The Struts
The British invasion has been something that has been happening in full force over the last two years or so both in mainstream radio and alternative. Large examples being Catfish and the Bottlemen, Bombay Bicycle Club and maybe the most radio friendly right now, The 1975. One band though that is just starting their journey in the states and skipped the step of playing a tiny room are The Struts!

We were able to catch their Boston date last week that had originally been in a club that only holds about 150 people but with that selling out that day, they were quickly moved to the much larger Sinclair which then quickly sold out as well. Despite the fact that the band has eight songs out and were on their first full US tour with their first appearance in Boston being that night, the band played for an hour and a half. As well as killing each track and including a cover or two, lead singer Luke Spiller had the crowd wrapped around his finger. The crowd roared at everything he said on stage and for the occasions he walked into the crowd, they were completely enamored with him.

The band brings back images of everyone from Queen down to The Libertines. Maybe they can be representing the latter even in the states since we haven’t been lucky enough to have them in the US. With a sold out tour under their belts and a recent relocation to LA, I’m sure we’ll be able to have them back soon in the states on tour. If their performance was any indication, this band will blow up and is sure to be on the level here that performers like Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and The 1975 are!
