Hotly tipped four piece The Rumble Strips release their first single after a number of successful 7” vinyl and limited edition downloads caught the attention of the music press.

This single, which will appear in Simon Pegg's new film 'Run Fatboy Run' is reminiscent of the Mystery Jets, with a lively 'let's all join in and make a noise' ethic. The song is an ideal summer hit single and could be mistaken for an upbeat Cure song, with Charlie Waller's almost identical vocal style and voice. At just over two and a half minutes long, it is short enough to encourage multiple listens without becoming boring and it leaves you wanting to hear more.

The Rumble Strips are one of many new indie bands who are showing great promise and fresh ideas. With the coup of getting on the soundtrack for a summer comedy, this song should, in theory at least, be a very worthwhile release for the band.

Release date: 3rd of September.
