London four-piece Storms have revealed the highly entertaining video for their grunge-pop laden debut track ‘Girl’. Premiering on Wonderland, who describe ‘Girl’ as an “upbeat melody layered with a heartfelt croon, made raw by a scuzzy 90s’s grunge undertone”, and the video as, “both endearing and funny [it] will appeal to anyone who’s felt for someone out of reach. A nerdy, but loveable, lead who pines for the girl of his dreams… His obsession is extreme – he even climbs a tree to perv on her undressing. But who could blame him? His tactics, perhaps worthy of a restraining order, pay off and he gets the girl.”
The track captures the best of Storms 90’s influences and seamlessly blends hypnotic pop sensibilities with a pounding anthemic chorus. Clash raved about the track saying, “Storms have a contagious edge. It’s there in their live shows, and it’s also there in the band’s songwriting – catchy, melodic yet retaining a real sense of grit.”
Over the past twelve months Storms have been creating quite a name for themselves with NME tipping their song ‘Swell’ last year, stating: “It’s hard not to fall for Storms after you hear their charming track. What ostensibly starts as a melodic slacker gem in the vein of Mac De Marco quickly evolves into a Nirvana-style thrash, and then back again.” Disorder magazine have also picked up on the band, saying, “With wrenching, scathing vocals and the splicing of Britpop and American College rock riffs, Storms are painting themselves as a band ready to take on the world, one song at a time”
Storms have also been championed as ones to watch in 2015 by XFM with plays from Dave Rowntree and Propaganda, have been getting plays from BBC Introducing and headlined X-RAY Touring’s tips for 2015 showcase as part of the ILMC. The band have built a stunning live reputation touring the UK solidly in 2014. They ended the year with rip-roaring performances headlining a nationwide tour with LIFE and playing über-cool club night This Feeling, even landing a tip in The Sun as one of the most exciting acts for 2015.
Storms have a busy summer of shows coming up including a performance at the Isle Of Wight festival this June and a residency from May through to August at the Blow Up Club at St Moritz in Soho.
