One To Watch :: The Lapelles

Words: LB

With a raft of tour dates lined up supporting The Last Shadow Puppets and The View, plus this ear-grabbing blaster of a track they have just put out, you feel The Lapelles - four 19-year-olds and a 21-year-old from East Kilbride, just outside of Glasgow - are on the verge of becoming a much talked about band this year. And given they have been snapped up by the London-based management company behind the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Royal Blood, you can sense The Lapelles are going to get some pretty hefty exposure.

'Get Life By' is the follow-up to 'Snakehips'/'Seventeen' released at the end of last year, and bursts out on infectious indie rock riffs, a smattering of synth and a ripe-for-swagger frontman in Gary Watson.

Check out the track below, and their upcoming live date list.

The Lapelles are: Gary Watson (vocals/guitar), Leon Green (guitar), Jack Anderson (bass/vocals), Christopher Ballantyne (synth), Jamie Holmes (drums)
