Indie rockers The Heavy
are a band which you wouldn't classically pigeon hole as indie music. There are the strong guitar elements you'd expect to hear in their sound but there's a hell of a lot of funk and soul to the tunes this English quartet pump out. Their latest single 'How You Like Me Now?
' is the kind of song that would be the soundtrack for a modern day Huggy Bear, all the soul of the seventies with the driving guitars that could power Starsky's Gran Torino straight to 2009. Signed to Counter Records
, a sub label of the fantastic Ninjatune
, The Heavy
have also compiled a superb remix package with fellow west countryman Joker
putting his trademark Dubstep spin on the track and a conga-tastic remix from Solo
which also comes in Dub form on the record. 'How You Like Me Now?' by The Heavy is out on 31st August on Counter Records.
