The Strypes “Got Love If You Want It” – Video

Irish teenage R&B sensations take on Slim Harpo classic


The Strypes are a maximum R&B outfit from Cavan Ireland that were formed in 2008 and whose current ages are between 16 and 18.


The band’s classic R&B based rock bands draws ready comparisons to the likes of the Yardbirds, Who, and early Stones as well as pre-punk pub rockers like Eddie & the Hot Rods and Rockpile.


The band have already won the adulation of musical legends like Elton John and Noel Gallagher of Oasis. Their debut album Snapshot was released in the UK last year and is due out in the US in March. They’ve just completed a five-city mini tour of the States and have been winning audiences and taste-makers over in cities like Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and San Francisco.


GSTV was at their LA show and we must admit we were absolutely blown away by what we saw! These four lads from Ireland have certainly got it and it’s refreshing to see four young men with looks, talent and charisma pick up guitars and learn to play rather than learning coordinated dance moves and boy band harmony.


They seem to have the right sense of humor to deal with the hype and we expect big things from The Strypes in 2014.


Check out their version of the oft-covered Slim Harpo classic “Got Love If You Want It.”
