They say practice makes perfect and this is most definitely the case with Croydon’s latest jangly, blues-fuelled rock offering, Coffeepot Drive. Subtly combining the hook laden guitar of Alabama Shakes with a huge vocal presence reminiscent of The Supremes, Coffee Pot Drive is a band that cannot be missed.
To say the group are experienced would be an understatement. Having toured with the likes of Status Quo, Uriah Heap, Goo Goo Dolls and even REO Speedwagon on an individual basis they have since joined together and are a force to be reckoned with. Guitarist Boanecker and Front woman Lady Oracle makes it clear that “all this was preparation for Coffeepot” and it cannot be denied that the band are ready to hit the big time.
Single “Hey Suzy!” taken off their debut album “Edge of Town” is a spine tingling rhythmic cacophony of so many different musical flavours and an accurate representation of the group dynamic. With over 5 different countries being represented in the line up, there is an eclectic mix of different genres and styles that help craft the Coffee Pot Drive sound.
Coffeepot Drive continues to beguile and enthral their audiences with their stereo recording and live sets. Catch them at a show or dance alone to their infectious tunes in your room. Wherever you are Coffeepot Drive’s lust for life will keep you feeling young, fresh and euphoric.
“Hey Suzy!” will be available from August 17th followed by album “Edge of Town” out on August 31st.
