Who: The Struts
Where: Derby, Derbyshire
What: Glam Rock
Sounds Like: Queen, Poison
The Struts is the definition of modern glam rock. I discovered this band when I was looking at the lineup of this year's Egdefest. Edgefest is an annual music festival in Frisco that alternative bands perform at and me being the high schooler I am, I couldn't afford tickets. It's a challenge wanting to go to all these concerts when I work at an ice cream store, but I will get to go to all the concerts I want when I open my own record label. The Struts is one of the bands on the concert lineup that really caught my attention. I love alternative music, but I feel like all these bands are trying so hard to be labeled "alternative" that the genre itself has become the opposite of that word. The Struts has a little bit of alternative, but their main focus is bringing back the 70's glam rock style and I love groups that revive old genres. It's a risky move bringing back an old trend because you never know how listeners will react, but sure enough, they've already caught the attention of a decent sized audience. They've even gone on tour with Motley Crue which is a huge accomplishment. Check them out!
