The Retroaction - These Things For You
The Retroaction - These Things For You

Release Date: Out Now

There’s something delightfully ramshackle about this debut single and its accompanying video from Toronto upstarts The Retroaction that I just fell in love with immediately. ‘These Things For You’ takes the raw energy and ‘one-take’ vibe of early White Strips and the Strokes, mixes it with the gang mentality of the Libertines and the Subways and then looks for direction from the Who, the Faces and early Rolling Stones material. The guitars are scratchy, the production values are pretty low and the vocals are slightly slurred but don’t you dare take any of those things as a negative. This is how bands should sound when they start out so now’s the time to get on board. 

Live Dates: 

25th November - This Ain't Hollywood, Hamilton
1st December - Queens Head, Burlington
19th December - Smiling Buddah, Toronto
