The Strypes - Blue Collar Jane at Glastonbury 2013

We’ve all gotten bored in traffic jams before but I don’t think anyones gone as far as The Strypes to avoid boredom in their latest music video for their track called A Good Night’s Sleep And A Cab Fare Home where they pick up their instruments and rock out. The track is really a pure rock anthem that reminds me a lot of the Arctic Monkeys mixed with a bit of Oasis and I am absolutely loving it. The track is rock at its finest and has me really excited for when their new album comes out - Jakk
