“Ways” is the debut Indie Surf-Rock single from the up and coming artist The Customers which any fans of Iggy and the Stooges, the Kinks, the Kooks and Velvet Revolver will want to check out.
The sunny Surf Rock rhythms may be slightly archaic, but that just allows Ways to drip with a colourful hazy nostalgia. The New Jersey-based artist has kept a fine balance of ingenuity and revival with Ways. Through the popping angular guitars and grittily raucous Indie Punk vocals, they inject plenty of their own visceral flavour into the genre whilst simultaneously treating you to a familiar soundscape.
They have since followed up the release of their debut with their second single “Patterns”. If you like what you hear, you’ll have plenty to look forward to from The Customers as they will be releasing their debut album in 2020.
You can listen to The Customers riff-packed debut for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
