Stats for this track
Once again proving that Scotland is a breeding ground for pure musical talent, Johnny & The Giros have arrived with their new single, I Don't Need A Lover.
The band draw from a diverse range of influences, including Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Bloc Party, The Rapture, Yeasayer and Two Door Cinema Club (amongst others), feeding into a sound that masterfully combines all of these elements, to create polished dance floor indie gems.
Interestingly, there are strong elements of Math Rock within their style. Imagine this mixed with a smattering of New York style indie performed at The Hacienda in its pomp, and you have Johnny & the Giros - an indie-rock band that have the uncanny ability to hold a dance crowd in the palm of their hands. I Don't Need A Lover is a stunning example of what these guys are truly capable of.
The band will be launching their free single with a live performance at the Short Back & Sides Clubnight at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow. Helping them commemorate the occasion will be Vigo Thieves and White Vinyl Collective, who'll spend the evening spinning some tunes. If the band's live show is anywhere near as impressive as their performance on record, this is definitely going to be a show that cannot be missed.
