The Strypes

by Chris Murray on August 27, 2013

I saw some great art and music this summer. The Strypes are one of the coolest rock and roll bands on the rise. I was in Cavan town in Ireland this July, where the Strypes hail from, and was invited to the filming of the video ‘What A Shame’ for their first album Snapshot, being released on September 9th.

Irish film maker Finn Keenan directed the video and created a brilliant set for the band.

Great fans of the blues, classic British rock and roll, and Bob Dylan, among others, the band was recently discovered by Elton John and have signed to Mercury Records.
