The Stangs is an energetic young three-piece band with an unmistakable sound encapsulating everything from Skiffle to Brit Rock to Pop Punk. They remind us a whole lot like a young up-and-coming Rolling Stones hungry to make a name for themselves in mainstream America. Maintaining an entirely organic approach to social media thus far, The Stangs are already creating waves in the British indie scene, utilizing support slots as their main tactic for gaining popularity. Demand for The Stangs in the UK has brought them to a number of festivals and well-known live venues.
Lead vocalist, Graeme Heath, is the band’s principal writer. Obsessed with creating unique lyrics, Graeme’s songs have a novel charm that harkens back to the sounds of Elvis Costello and the Attractions and recall familiar characters in the lives of all of us. He creates lyrics that truly support the sounds created by the guitar and bass line. Visually, the band is a burst of energy on stage while humbled in understated apparel reminiscent of their greatest early influences. They have so much love more music that it shows whenever they perform. Rock ‘N Roll needs that fire to burn in their music again and The Stangs have it.
Having an earlier show at the Troubadour caught the attention of a very well-known producer who flew them to his New Jersey studio to record their first EP, American Sessions, thus “She’s a Stranger” was born. They will be releasing it song by song with their single, “Beekeeper”, being the last.
