West Midlands trio The Americas are keeping rock ‘n’ roll alive
Location: West Midlands
FFO: The Strawberries, False Heads, Himalayas
Looking for a fresh take on some old-school rock ‘n’ roll? Well have no fear, The Americas are here.
They’ve got it all; rolling rhythm, blues riffs, down-to-earth lyricism and a classic rock ‘n’ roll sensibility that you could easily ride a motorcycle to, and if that’s not enough to get excited about, their latest track ‘Come On Out’ is perhaps their best yet.
With vocals that almost sound like the West Midlands’ answer to mid 60’s Bob Dylan atop a rolling soundscape of guitar, piano and tight percussion, it’s fair to say that the title of their upcoming EP Guitar Music Is Dead is perhaps a little false. If anything, The Americas are single-handedly keeping it alive. Kudos.
