Listen :: New Glasgow outfit St. Dukes offer an 'Easy Money' new single
Words: Richard Cobb
Glasgow’s St. Dukes are an incredibly difficult band to pocket into one, or even two, genres so let’s call them a punk/blues/grunge band. The quartet’s just released new single ‘Easy Money’ (the follow-up to last spring's 'Howlin At The Moon') races along with the help of a verging on possessed driving rhythm section from Craig Williams on bass and drummer Max Orr for the three-and-a-half minute duration with no let up.
What’s instantly perceivable with the band, particularly on this track is there’s evidently a mixed bag of influences thrown into the mix, yet they seem to work together to create a truly compelling sound. There’s elements of Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana and The Kills here with a subtle offering of Arcade Fire also on show in the style of the regular trade in vocal duties from guitar members Sarah Connor and Lewis Allan Douglas.
There’s currently no more new music on the horizon from these guys at the moment, so just keep this track on repeat until further notice.
St. Dukes have a couple of Glasgow shows upcoming over the next weeks: The 13th Note, Glasgow on February 10, and Broadcast on February 25.
