It seems that looking back is often the new moving forwards these days. That’s not necessarily a band thing, of course, as long as you plunder from the past with style and energy. The Statics certainly do that. Recording on analogue (plus a computer for one unavoidable moment), there’s a strong sense of ’60s panache about what they do as well as later bands who thrived on the same influences. Put it this way, Thomas Walsh loves them. Latest single ‘Hit & Miss’ proves that they’re getting better with every step.
The Statics play Whelan’s on March 28th.
