Burning Condors are four London lads
getting the scenesters
talking with an exciting sound, which owes as much
to the likes of Muddy Waters and Carl Perkins as to The
Libertines and Arctic Monkeys. Working with Grammy
award nominated engineer Mandy Parnell (Alabama 3,
Paul McCartney, Franz Ferdinand), their EP “Welcome
to the Players Club “ combines dirty grinding blues and
country influences with a garage rock rawness that has
seen the band draw comparisons with Youth and Young
Manhood era Kings of Leon.
Having gone down a storm at indie clubnights as well as the
blues bars and rockabilly nights that have been springing up all
over the the trendy London scene, the band has found favour
with a new generation of fans, sick of the never ending conveyor
belt of sound-alike bands.
Not content with this, Burning Condors have won respect
from even the most hardcore Country and Blues fans.
This was confirmed when the band was chosen to support
reknowned US Country/Blues band Th’ Legendary Shack
Shakers at their 2010 London show. The Shack Shakers were
so impressed with the intensity and freshness of Burning
Condors’ live show that the bands double bassist and
producer of their last 4 albums, Mark Robertson, has invited
the boys to his studio in Nashville to cut their debut album
and to support the band on their next UK tour.
In 2010 famous bikers haunt Ace Cafe chose Burning
Condors to perform at the Harley Davidson aftershow party.
They were recently chosen as the featured band on the website
of popular online clothing company Devoted2Vintage and
modelled for them in their latest promotional campaign.
Playing music so intrinsticly linked to American culture,
Burning Condors’ hard hitting rootsy sound naturally draws
comparisons to bands from the other side of the Atlantic. But
whilst Burning Condors are influenced by American music and
culture, what makes them unique is that they wear their London
roots on their sleeves. No fake tales of San Fransisco. Burning
Condors are the real deal.
