The Strypes - 'Hometown Girls'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 8, 2013
  • Label: Mercury
When Ross Farrelly from The Strypes sings “I reek of sweat and teenage innocence”, there’s a good chance he’s singing about the time he ran out of Lynx Africa just short of Christmas. Nonetheless, failing to show his lack of age, ‘Hometown Girls’ is a note-perfect ’60s garage-rock replica that would have gone down well in the Cavern Club in 1963. Play it to your nan and laugh at her amphetamine flashbacks.
