They say practice makes perfect and this is most definitely the case with Croydon’s latest jangly, blues-fuelled rock offering, Coffeepot Drive. Subtly combining the hook laden guitar of Alabama Shakes with a huge vocal presence reminiscent of The Supremes, Coffee Pot Drive is a band that cannot be missed.
Coffeepot Drive does themselves immense credit by creating a record that is both delicate and hard hitting. The lyricism and musicality in the record evokes emotion and pleasure in equal measure. So many personal experiences and hilarious episodes have influenced this release it’s hard not to be endeared to the group.
Their live presence stands up to their recording quality with the band having already sold out acclaimed London venue Ronnie Scott’s and residencies at The New Cross Inn and The Spice of Life. Described as “Dirty Soul” Coffee Pot Drive has spread their wings and count names as lofty as Pixie Lott amongst their fans. She invited them to play her showcase in August, a testament to their wide ranging appeal.
“Hey Suzy!” will be available from August 17th followed by album “Edge of Town” out on August 31st.
