THE STRUTS


The Struts have been a live sensation since they first erupted onto the scene with their certified Platinum anthem, “Could’ve Been Me,” taking the No. 5 spot on Alternative Radio and introducing the world to their triumphant, timeless rock sound. Following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut, 2016’s Everybody Wants, the British rockers set out on the road, bringing their energetic tracks alive on stage with larger-than-life performances and cementing their reputation as a must-see live act. Lead vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies have continued to prove themselves worthy of that distinction since first coming together in Derby, England back in 2012. They’ve opened for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, and Guns N’ Roses, while selling out shows across the globe and leaving a trail of unbridled rock collections, including 2018’s Young & Dangerous and 2020’s Strange Days, in their wake. Their on-stage prowess and perpetual musicality have allowed them to reach the No. 1 Spot on Spotify’s Viral Top 50, garner more than 850M on-demand streams, and put them in the studio collaborating with Kesha, Tom Morello, Robbie Williams, Def Leppard and more. Now, The Struts have taken the raucous nature of their live shows and transmuted it into an album, fusing their arena-sized energy into their most concentrated and exciting songs to date. “This record showcases each individual member's strengths,” Spiller says of their fourth album and first full-length release on Big Machine/John Varvatos Records, Pretty Vicious (11/3). “It’s some of my favorite music, hands down, we’ve ever conjured up. It’s the record everyone’s been waiting for.”

BARNS COURTNEY


Barns Courtney is heavy on stomp and swagger, bringing to mind the primal thump of The White Stripes, the punk rock energy of the Sex Pistols, and a good dose of indie-rock edge and gospel. A vaguely grimy feel to the production, recalls the seedy but glittery intrigue of The Velvet Underground. "Even if the name Barns Courtney doesn't spark recognition, his 2015 song "Fire" might. A blues-leaning rock song that evoked both Ennio Morricone and Kanye West's "Black Skinhead," it was a crossover radio hit and was licensed for Volkswagen, Bose and the Bradley Cooper film Burnt. At the center is Courtney's world-weary voice, a chameleonic instrument showcasing range (and a few bars) on this year's full-length debut, The Attractions of Youth. Youth combines "Fire" and other early singles with a slate of newer genre-splitters like the psychedelic "Golden Dandelions," and an overt hip-hop turn on "Hobo Rocket." Here and there, an occasional vocal flourish hearkens back to his more-polished, pop-punk past. "[The album is] about the naive, seemingly indomitable passion for music that burned in my gut since I can remember," he says. Just a few years back, a previous record deal fizzled out, and he was left wondering if a career in music would still be possible. As his luck changed, Courtney landed slots opening for the Who, Blur, Ed Sheeran and more. While he's enjoying his success, he admits, "I find it harder to write songs when I feel happy" ~Reed Fischer, Rolling Stone
