Weeks – Get Away


Contra Records
Written By Mark Jones

Weeks are a four piece Mod/Powerpop band and have just released their debut 7”. They mix elements of Guitar Gangsters, Oasis, The Chords and The Jam and the results are pleasing to the ear. The band are from the Isle of White and feature Liam Hodge from The Dead Perry’s on vocals and guitar, Sid Ryan from Grade 2 on Bass and Vocals, Nij Lynk on Guitar and Vocals and Marc Maitland on Drums and Vocals.

The title track kicks things off and what a start, brilliant lyrics, musically very good and a chorus you can sing along to. ‘Law & Order comes next and is just over two and a half minutes of brilliance before the final track ‘2 Fingers Raised’, a melodic track and like the previous tracks musically excellent and with a melody and chorus to die for.

This is a great debut and I’m looking forward to what the band will release next because if it’s only half as good as the songs on here we will be in for a treat.
