WHO ARE THE 27?
The next Big British band has finally arrived – and with breathtaking guitar riffs and tight, harmoniously melodic (un auto-tuned) vocals, The 27 are undoubtedly set for very great things.
The 27 have just released their new single, Call Me A Friend. For lead vocalist Henry, it’s the result of six eventful years spent seeking like-minded musicians, searching for a sound and experiencing the highs, lows and heartbreak you’ll hear in his lyrics. Along the way, he has played covers in pubs on David Bowie’s vintage Gibson guitar, shared stages with country music star Margo Price, travelled to Nashville to write, recorded an ill-fated album in L.A. while living in the laundry room of a hair salon and spent a summer working as a guitar tech, prepping Coldplay’s guitars for a tour.
The 27, comprising of Henry Parker, David Page, Tom Michell, Alex Tschaikowsky and their trademark 1970’s influenced style and sound, have already received glowing reviews and radio support and are now set for fans and industry alike to hear their new set of self penned songs.
Whether you’re listening to their spellbinding EP, or watching one of their mesmerizingly well crafted live performances, you’d have to admit that The 27 are undoubtedly the next big British band.
