Josh McClorey, Ross Farrelly, Pete O'Hanlon and Evan Walsh of Irish rhythm and blues band The Strypes appeared at Leeds Festival 2013 to chat to us about their upcoming debut album 'Snapshot', working with producer Chris Thomas and previously being signed to Elton John's label.
'It was amazing to be working with someone who's produced all the albums he's produced like the Sex Pistols and The Pretenders and he's even worked with McCartney', said drummer Evan Walsh. He took everyone's ideas on board as well and brought a bit of his own thing to it.' Talking about Elton John who signed them to his label Rocket Music Management, guitarist Pete O'Hanlon revealed, 'We sang to his management label which was how he came into the picture', before bassist Josh McClorey added, 'We did a gig in Brighton at Christmastime last year, a really, really small gig and he was there at that which was a bit of a shock.'
