Ragged US rock band The Districts premiere their video for new single ‘4th & Roebling’, raspy vocals and hard hitting drums is the rock ‘n’ roll we’ve been waiting for.
We’ve had our eyes on these ones since their Wonderland New Noise slot and we’ve been waiting patiently for a second siting. Taken from the band’s new album ‘A Flourish And A Spoil’ (mark it in your calendars, out on February 9th), the brand new single ‘4th & Roebling’ is infectious with the lead singers earthy drawl and pounding drums, that induce an uncontrollable all over body jig. Long haired reckless abandon the boys go all out. The video is a live recorded session, part of HotBox Sessions, and is whimsically grunge. Neglected pale green walls with a suitable amount of exposed brick work, artful light leaks and its a perfect equation for rock ‘n’ roll. Clear the bedroom floor and get up, this song will get you moving. The type to blast from your headphones and impress at your next house party by learning all the words. Avoiding all guy liner but with added face fluff, tight jeans and baggy jumpers, they are the unsuspecting poster boys of the future. Since their debut in 2012 with Telephone, they have been busy, appearing at Reading and Leeds festivals and scattering performances across the UK and US. We can’t wait to see what else is to come from the new album!
