Whiskey fuelled garage-rockers Albino distill Doors influenced folk-rock sound with new single ‘Belinda’

Labelling themselves as ‘London’s greatest alcoholic garage rock band (probably)’, four piece folk-rock band Albino are on the road to releasing their latest album, Night At The Chemist, from which their new retro-infused single, ‘Belinda’, is taken.

Encapsulating a throwback, vintage rock sound, embellished with handfuls of country and sprinklings of americana (plus a good swig of whiskey), it’s the kind of musical recipe that would make Johnny Cash proud, but would equally strike a note with fans of Tom Waits, The Animals, The Doors and children of the 60s ‘flower-power’ generation.

Consisting of Ben Tucker (guitar/vocals), Merv ‘Fuzzy’ Salole (Bass), Gareth ‘gwEM’ Morris (guitar) and Don Gibson (percussion), Albino’s sole aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music. As the main songwriter in the outfit, Ben is the driving inspirational force, tapping into a deep well of life experiences that draw on topics as diverse as love, deviancy, distrust of priests, historical events and of course, drinking.

Since their inception in 2005, Albino has undergone a musical metamorphosis, travelling a long way from their humble beginnings, but now, the off-the-wall band has cemented their style and truly found their own sound. Whilst Albino’s eclectic and multi-talented musical line up has changed over the years, their musical direction, commitment and energy has always remained constant.

As the band have stated: ‘We may not change the world with our music, but we’ll definitely leave a scar.’
