I’m rather intrigued by The Wholls, a young band from Bedford, England, who seem to be following The Arctic Monkeys Guide to Success™.
They’re proudly unsigned and unmanaged and fully DIY. Their efforts are being underwritten by a sponsorship from Pr1mo High Revs, which includes a debut EP, Back to the B-Hive (using, incidentally, engineer Jason Howes, who has worked with the Monkeys). Their next goals are to build a rehearsal space and to pursue music full time.
Give ’em a listen and see what you think.
