The Subways are living the provincial kid’s dream. Already praised by the NME and Q and tipped by Zane Lowe to be the definitive new band of the year, the trio made phenomenal strides throughout 2004 towards fulfilling that destiny. Their first release on City Pavement/Infectious will be the single ‘Oh Yeah’, which is due for release on March 21st.
Produced by Ian Broudie (The Zutons, The Coral, Echo & The Bunnymen) ‘Oh Yeah’, is a dirty hybrid of punk, rock and true soul with Billy’s powerful howl neatly offset by Charlotte’s sassy and understated backing vocals. It’s a track that’s certain to introduce the charms of The Subways to their widest audience to date.
The Subways have supported veritable who’s who of the alternative music scene – Graham Coxon, The Von Bondies, The Datsuns, Charlotte Hatherley, The (International) Noise Conspiracy and a phenomenally confident display at The Tears debut at Heaven.
They were handpicked by Michael Eavis to perform on The Other Stage at Glastonbury and also played at the Reading and Leeds festivals. Needless to say, Infectious were suitably impressed and snapped them up, giving them their own City Pavement imprint. Not bad going for any band, let alone one with an average age of eighteen emerging from the suburbia of Welwyn Garden City.
The Subways are confirmed to play a full national tour running from early March to April.
