East London 5-piece, Dexters have announce the release of their debut album ‘Shimmer Gold’, out March 17th through Acid Jazz Records. The album will be preceded by the single ‘Recover’ which is released on March 10th in what promises to be an exciting year for the band.
Dexters is formed of frontman Tom Rowlett, guitarists Chris Heggie and Ben Debo, bassist Jamie Harris and drummer Chris Mardon. The quintet have already caused a big stir with their recently released single ‘The Hard Way’ and previous single ‘Start To Run’ garnishing tastemaker support from the likes of NME, Q, XFM and The Sun.
Gigslutz has had a little listen to the album sampler and can confirm it gets the thumbs up from us. Frontman Tom Rowlett said about the album “
“We’re ready to make the next step up with this album – it’s 11 big tracks, not one radio made single and see you later, that’s your lot. Trust me, it’s one of the best debut albums in years and we can’t wait for people to hear it.”
