Update (07/10/12): I Don’t Need A Lover is now available for free download from the soundcloud player below!
Once again proving that Scotland is a breeding ground for pure musical talent, Johnny & The Giros have arrived with their new single, I Don’t Need A Lover, which will be released as a free download on October 5th 2012 via Dead Hand Records.
The band draw from a diverse range of influences, including Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Bloc Party, The Rapture, Yeasayer and Two Door Cinema Club (amongst others). That said it is little surprising that there are strong elements of Math Rock within their style combined with new wave and shoegaze.
The band will be launching their free single with a live performance at the Short Back & Sides Clubnight at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow. Helping them commemorate the occasion will be Vigo Thieves – who have recently released a new free single – and White Vinyl Collective, who’ll spend the evening spinning some tunes. These clubnights will be the platform for JATG to release a series of free download singles starting with I Don’t Need A Lover which will be availble to download from midnight on the night.
