Originating from Walthamstow, East London, Eastern Fool are a four-piece band of disarrayed wretches. That’s in their own words, of course – but whatever state they’re in, they make bloody good music.

Drawing influence from the likes of The Beatles, Blur, The Clash, The Stone Roses, A Tribe Called Quest, The Black Keys, Tame Impala, King Krule and the recording/production techniques of Steve Lacy, they take the best bits of their heroes and inject a healthy dose of their own energy to bring you Eastern Fool.

With two self-produced/released singles entitled ‘Spoon Of Fire’ and ‘5.A.M,’ and EPs It’s Alright I’m Sprung On Life and the most recent 2018’s In The Light Of Reason, there’s more than enough Eastern Fool to get your teeth sunk into.

Eastern Fool play Ripple Red Presents: Ride The Wind at The Amersham Arms on 23 August
