Something a little cool for your Wednesday night perusal…
The gang from Warner Music Australia is on the verge of releasing the debut album from UK/Aussie vocal quintet The Overtones. And though we’ve yet to hear too much about the lads on Aussie soil, overseas their star is rising with an almost vertical trajectory, what with sell-out shows, countless television appearances and a top five UK album.
There’s also a uniquely Australian connection too, with member Lachie Chapman hailing from Sydney – the other four (Timmy, Mark, Mike and Darren) hail from different parts of the UK.
Stylistically, think Human Nature Motown-esque soul, combined with a fun, ultra-cool doo-wop ’50s feel, but with its feet firmly planted in the pop barrel and you’ll not be far off the mark.
‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’ is due for release in Australia on Friday March 09.
