Biography

Luke Spiller (Vocals), Addo Slack (Guitar), Jed Elliott (Bass) and Gethin Davies (Drums) make up Derbyshire, England based indie band The Struts. I coincidently know Gethin, who joined the band earlier this year. However this is no reason for my judgment of the music to be biased in anyway, and I believe any band/artist’s music should be judged on that alone.

Their single I Just Know (released in May 2012) has a classic blues rock vibe to it, which is a hard sound to dislike! The riff is simple, but has you nodding your head along from the get go which can only be seen to be a good sign. On the production side of things, the song has a really full sound to it, giving an anthemic feel. Along with the instrumental composition, the vocals particularly distinguishable; with a resemblance to Kill It Kid (One Little Indian) vocalist Chris Turpin. The sound of the band as a whole is great, and you can imagine the enormous sound being transferred to a sweaty live environment with ease; Possibly giving the song an entirely new lease of life.
At a mere two and a half minutes, the single itself allows us to get a real feel for the essence of the band. The song bounces between the massive riff and Spiller’s Vocals alone with drums, giving the vocals a real opportunity to shine.
