The latest contestants to be spat out of The Royal Hotel’s annual Local Voice competition have today announced that they’re starting a band.
The newly formed four-member band thought it best to showcase their talents with 3 very different renditions of Outkast’s Hey Ya.
Not wanting to pigeon-hole themselves into a particular genre yet, the lads released an acoustic, heavy metal and trap version of the song. As of the time of print, none of the tracks were received particularly well, with some industry bigwigs going as far as calling it “horrendous” and something they “wouldn’t even play in a car they’re about to set on fire.”
However, these negative reviews haven’t damped the young boys’ spirit, with lead singer, Alixander [sic], saying he was very much looking forward to their first gig at the Betoota Dolphins Leagues Club.
The boy band are yet to settle on a name, however, Alixander informed The Advocate that there were a few ideas on the table.
“Vibe Merchants is one, then our drummer likes The Kek Patrol. My favourite is probs The Pat Cash Pash Rash Experience – get it?”
The Advocate understands that the band has already added their 3 tracks to Spotify and YouTube, none of the tracks have got a full play yet.
More to come.
