The energetic rock trio formerly known as SubCulture get the ball rolling under new name ‘Sharp Class’ with thunderous new 2-sided single, ‘Move’.
Move really packs a punch… It is the perfect single to come back with and show that now we really mean business. We’re hitting the ground running.
– Frontman, Oliver Orton
A-side, ‘Move’ really does what it says on the tin. Without a doubt it will get you up and moving. Opening with a fast and heavy drum beat and a scorching guitar that traps you in, you are immediately thrown into a mosh-pit of raw punk aggression. It is the perfect combination of Punk, Blues and Soul which is laced with a heavy dose of British Mod Culture which is bound to get you dancing.
Meanwhile B-side ‘Ready To Go’ is a refreshing twist on Madness and The Who. A song which clearly channels the bands’ musical influences once again – a mesmerising riff alongside ska-stemmed stabs throughout reiterates the new name ‘Sharp Class’ – a perfect reflection of the bands upbeat melodies.
The 2-sided single is set to be released on 31st July but it is available to preorder now: https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/sharpclass/move
Formed in 2017, Oliver Orton, Declan Mills and Lewis Smith started gigging relentlessly straight out of the gate playing pubs, clubs, festivals and music halls that each month grew further and further away from their home town of Nottingham and proving that the word was getting around.
A 2 year span saw the trio play over 300 gigs around the UK, expanding their fanbase and allowing them to hone in their craft for the performing live. In late 2018, the band were signed on the spot to Heavy Soul! Records and throughout 2019/20 released 4 singles, 8 songs in total. Now armed with a name and new music, Sharp Class are set to take on the music world with vigour, style, passion and soul.
