The most amazing thing about The Strypes is that they sound like they do, but they’re all around 15 years old.

An Irish four-piece beat band who obviously take inspiration from the original era of that sound, they have a new EP out now, which is led by their take on the Bo Diddley tune ‘You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover’.

You can hear that in the clip below. You can also catch the band out and about, including at the Timebox London Weekender. If you want to know more, the Facebook page for the band is here or follow them on Twitter here.


Love Modculture? If you enjoy what you read or have benefitted from it and want to help with the ever-increasing costs of the site and newsletter, you can always buy me a coffee at Ko-Fi. Every penny is helpful and appreciated.
