Detroit Social Club are an alternative six-piece from Newcastle who, after six months in the making, have finally finished recording their debut album due for release Spring 2010. If you haven't already heard them, DSC play bluesy, Kasabian-esque 60s rock n roll, with instruments ranging from sitars to synthesizers on their dirty brand of Brit-rock. There are clear elements of Primal Scream and The Stone Roses in their music, the band describe even themselves as 'Analogue experimentation of the modern kind. Retro-Big beat-Gospel influenced-junkie folk, made in 1970s New York.'
They are embarking on a mini-tour before Christmas partially in support of their new material and partially in celebration, and that isn't all they're doing. They are offering a free download of their first single 'Black and White' available through their myspace.

There's no doubt that if this relatively unknown band play their cards right, they can, and will be the next Kasabian, or Primal Scream, or something on that level. They have everything that genre needs - catchy bluesy guitar lines, anthemic chorusses and every bit of Oasis-style confidence and swagger. After a year or two of kicking around and getting their name heard, Detroit Social Club are heading out with intent and material to back their hype up. Detroit Social Club are definitely one to watch in 2010, but if you want to catch them this year, tour dates are below.
