The Luka State - Stick Around

Four-piece from Cheshire Conrad Ellis (vocals, guitar), Sam Bell (bass, voice), Jake Barnabas (drums), and Lewis Pusey (guitars) are Winsford's The Luka State. The town is known for its salt mine and is located midway between Liverpool and Manchester, where every child dreams of playing music or football. The Luka State, thankfully, picked music. The band transforms this into a working-class vitality in their music, with references to The Clash and The Jam's early work.

This is their new single, called Stick Around, starting with a good pace: the rhythm section is fully on, the guitars complete the sound and the vocals are inspired, especially during the chorus, absolutely catchy and that probably will get stuck for a bit in your head. The song is easy listening, it has a very good sound and it's very well performed by the band. Give it a go by clicking on the YouTube player below and don't forget to follow The Luka State on social media.
