As I trudged through the murky depths of the internet I stumbled across a band called ‘The Tones’. Something made me stop and look closer. The combination of their thumbnail profile picture and it’s black and white grungy glory combined with their South London location (calling out to my infatuation with all things British) compelled me to give the page at least a once-over.
Seeing only one song on their SoundCloud, I clicked into the abyss that is online music. By the time 15 seconds had passed I knew that the internet Gods were smiling down on me; among the thousands of bands and millions of songs, I found this ONE sole track by a band I had no business discovering, and it straight up kicks ass!
This is the gritty kind of rock and roll that makes everything in the world not matter for three minutes. All you can do is crank the volume as high as it will go and scream along. If you are only going to post one song online for the world to hear, this is the way to do it, a grab-you-and-don’t-let-go punk flavored anthem. Congrats dudes, you’ve just won yourselves a new fanboy. Now get back in the studio and give us all a full-length record soon!
