In 2012, The Strums first burst onto the scene with their debut EP Are You Picking Up What I’m Putting Down – and since then they’ve been refining their sound and honing their skills across the country with bouts of relentless touring. Certainly, it’s no wonder the bands latest single, Rock N Roll [due out on March 14th], promises to follow in those footsteps.
Produced by Caleb James, The Strums wanted to emulate the bands they love and go back to a time “when to make a good record you had to be able to do it straight up once and do it really fucking well” – achieving that objective by recording all the vocals in one take and without overdubs.
While the single is still a couple of weeks away from being released, the band have given fans a 38-second teaser for the track, which you can check out below.
The band have also recently announced they will be joining Australian rock icons, The Baby Animals for their upcoming tour throughout March [as well as their own headlining gig on February 28th in Brisbane].
