East London 5-piece, Dexters, today announce the release of their debut album ‘Shimmer Gold’, out March 17th through Acid Jazz Records preceded by the single Recover is released on March 10th.
Groups of good time boys and girls, musicians and renegades, vampires and vagabonds throughout the country are rooted in the same, unenviable and rudimentary limbo, frantically scheming, delicately lock-picking and audaciously plotting for the next strike for gold.
Dexters have the master keys to that lock. They stole, or in fact borrowed them from the caretaker of a ramshackle school for young tearaways in the rough part of East London they grew up in, a place that feels a million miles from the chattering of the yuppified Hoxton bars just around the corner.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of The Las, The Libertines, Black Lips and The Strokes, Dexters bring a refreshing modern swagger and youthful enthusiasm to guitar musics current grey landscape. Dexters is formed of frontman Tom Rowlett, guitarists Chris Heggie and Ben Debo, bassist Jamie Harris and drummer Chris Mardon. The quintet have already caused a big stir with their recently released single ‘The Hard Way’ and previous single ‘Start To Run’.
With their infectious energy and the big tunes to match, the band are a force to be reckoned with on the live scene. Having already supported The Courteeners, Miles Kane, The View and Glasvegas on UK tours, this month they embark on their own extensive UK tour previewing tracks from ‘Shimmer Gold’, including their biggest London show to date at The Garage.
