The Strives are a three-piece alternative rock band from the North East of Scotland who have been captivating audiences with their superb live performances since 2015.
Their sound is heavy, hypnotic and melodic with drum and bass lines that smack you in the face like a belligerent drunk while the harmonious guitar and lead vocals soften the blow. The Strives hit the sweet spot between being driven to take flight into the pit and immersing yourself in infectious harmony.
The past few years has seen the band gig relentlessly around the UK including high profile support slots with Scouting for Girls, The View, The Pigeon Detectives and Baby Strange.
Their debut EP “Kingpin” is released on IMOUT Records on 19th March 2018 coinciding with The Strives first ever headline performance at The Ironworks Venue, Inverness on Fri 23rd March.
