The Socks Release First Track from Self-Titled Debut; Album Available to Preorder.

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

With a retro mindset, gorgeous Arrache-toi un Oeil artwork (you might recall the cover from Blaak Heat Shujaa‘s The Edge of an Era was similarly lush), and boogie and loosely social thematics imported from Scandinavia, Lyon rockers The Socks will make their self-titled debut on Small Stone in the New Year. The album is set for release on March 18th, 2014 and available for preorder now through the  Small Stone Bandcamp, where the track “Some Kind of Sorcery” also premiered today.

Probably the most distinct influence you’ll hear in “Some Kind of Sorcery” is Hisingen Blues-style Graveyard shuffle, but the four-piece band, who’ve put two EPs under their collective belt over the last two years since getting together in 2010, have a solid underpinning of less era-adherent heavy rock, and that comes out later into the track in a groovy slowdown and the ease with which they move from one side of their approach to another.

Starting in the Sping of 2014, the band will be aggresively touring Europe behind this release, and we see nothing but good things for these young men in the not so distant future.
