Slydigs are a charismatic four-piece hailing from the thriving hub of musical heritage, Britain’s North-West. The four school friends are pulsating and pumping fresh blood into the rock and roll scene that many see as dead, or at least hibernating. Recently Slydigs have supported The Who on their world tour, plus slots supporting Catfish and the Bottlemen, The View and Pete Doherty.

‘How Animal Are You’ is the lead single from the forthcoming EP of the same name which will be a six-track collection injected with all the swagger of classic rock. The EP was written during the intriguing transition from the mundane daily grind to working with one of rock’s finest ever groups. The EP is expected to showcase the gritty fire that the band has been containing since day one.

The lead single opens with a slick riff countered by sustained notes that fuzz away with gravelly confidence. Drums enter with a boom and the track begins to swashbuckle with rolling guitars, tumbling bass lines and tambourines that are reminiscent of classic Stones and Oasis. Lead vocalist Dean Fairhurst makes his entrance with a strut in his voice, oozing with a grizzly charm, which compliments his throwback image to the days of Brian Jones.

Before the catchy anthemic chorus, the band throw in synchronised claps for good measure. It’s little things like this that keep the joy in the track and I can assure you that you won't be struck by boredom with 'How Animal Are You?', only the uplifting power of pure rock and roll. Slydigs new song does not let up until the end, and it will be over before you know it, making you play it like a kid with a new toy, again.
