revellions

The Strypes have been leading the retro revival, to much critical acclaim – though the group does nothing for me. The Revellions, though, are a different story, going more for a ska sound than just Beatles covers. They sound like the Zutons before they met Valerie, with brass taking centre stage. ‘Don’t Wait For Me’ is taken from the Revellions’ forthcoming album Give It Time, and is three minutes that I just want on repeat all the time. And they’re even playing a gig night called Retro Revival. It’s being held in Dublin on April 6 and features Cork band the Vincents. Harmless Noise has more info on the gig here.
