If there’s any region of Britain which is synonymous with producing exciting rock and roll bands, then it would have to be the north-west. Lying at the centre point between Stoke-on-Trent and the two powerhouse that are Manchester and Liverpool is a town named Winford which emerged around the salt-mining industry and could be set to become known for providing the birth of Deadbeat Echoes.
John Robb, former vocalist in the punk band Goldblade and founder of the music magazine/blog ‘Louder Than War’, claimed last year that “Deadbeat Echoes are the best young band in the UK”. Their debut single ‘Surge of Youth’ was released on Louder Than War Records in 2012, and the band, who have toured with Inspiral Carpets and The Charlatans, are looking to build momentum with their second release.
‘No Bones’ is a blistering three minute long composition with bursts of guitar reminiscent of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Jack Fearon’s combines the talented vocals of Alex Turner and Liam Fray to create a voice which bellows out menacingly as the track edges towards its intense finale.
The band have been working on an album with sound engineer John Delf who has mixed the likes of Plan B, Eliza Doolittle and The Script amongst others, and if this is anything to go by, make no bones about it, it could be the real deal.
