Newcastle’s The Pre-Amps formed in 2017 when they met at college and bonded over their love of all things mod and melodic. After playing over 100 shows across the UK as a covers band, it was a natural progression for the boys to take their influences and put their collective talents into creating something of their own. ‘Doesn’t Change’ is the debut single by The Pre-Amps and released by the Label Recordings.
The dreamy psychedelic pop track has been described by vocalist Kelvin as a modern interpretation of ‘Substitute’ by The Who and whilst The Pre-Amps wouldn’t look out of place on an episode of Small Faces era Top Of The Pops thanks to their pristine aesthetic, they are not just another pastiche band. With a big bright sing a long chorus, and a horn section, ‘Doesn’t Change’ is a nu-mod classic in the making.
The Pre-Amps will no doubt be one to watch in 2020. Full of the sort of attitude that so made Marriott, Moon and Reg King legends of their own era, this is the right generation for the band to explode out of the north.
