The Whereabouts

(photographer - Mark Hylands)

The Wherabouts are a young 4 piece rock and roll band from Co. Cavan in Ireland. 
They have been together for just over a year, and are all the tender ages of just 18/19; when I first heard their music, I thought they sounded a lot older. 

Here is their new video for their latest single "Money and Fame" - a rhythm and blues track which also has rock n roll elements. 

The BBC described their sound as 'Jump Beat'. The boys have had a great year, and have been featured on BBC6 music and Dermot O'Leary's radio show. On new years eve, they supported the very successful Kodaline in Dublin. The band have also supported Tom Odell, Imelda May and Daughtry.

Check out their music video and let me know what you think.

Stock, Aitken and Waterman

I'm writing my dissertation on the music of Stock, Aitken and Waterman, I have just one question I'd love to hear your answers to as part of my research..

What are your first initial thoughts when you hear the music of Stock, Aitken and Waterman? (Kylie, Jason, Rick Astley, Mel and Kim, Sinnita etc...)

Thanks very much!
