Melbourne Rock n’ Rollers The Solicitors are looking forward to taking the stage at The Great Northern on Thursday November 20th to showcase tracks from their first full album, ‘Blank Check’.
Influenced by late 70’s/early 80’s post-punk and new-wave, The Solicitors forrmed in 2012 when English songwriter Lee Jones met American guitarist Laf Zuccarello in Melbourne and were quickly signed to local indie label Popboomerang before they’d even played a gig.
2013’s ”Made To Measure’ EP garnered a lot of praise from critics received airplay on national and local stations. Their follow up long player, ‘Blank Check’ is half an hour of succinct, unabashed Rock’n’Roll Pop music. It’s heavily laced with hooky melodies & clever lyrics that give a unique twist on fast-paced Pub-rock. Influenced by late 70’s/early 80’s post-punk and new-wave, but tailored for the modern world.
Well known as the band in the sharp suits, we’re looking forward to catching these “four working class guys trying to make a good impression” when they hit The Great Northern on November 20.
