The Strypes - I'm Shakin'

What was I just saying about a new generation of clued up bands? I've featured The Strypes on here before and this is a new video from them.

As guitarist Josh Mclorey explains at the outset, it is their cover of Jack White's cover of a Little Willie John song. It also features another great video from talented young film maker, Finn Keenan. The video comes in the wake of what was, by all accounts, a triumphant, star-studded show at Ronnie Scotts recently.

The Strypes are taking R&B classics and giving them a very strong, contemporary edge. As has been said before, they have a huge future ahead of them. It looks like it might be starting to kick off for them, which is very good news indeed.
