The Strypes thrive on sweaty clubs, on the electric appeal of R&B.
Yet the Irish band have another side to them. Refusing to rely on volume to prove their point, the youthful collective have a penchant for whipping out their acoustic guitars for a Delta hoedown.
Heading to Bestival, the much hyped newcomers caused an explosion of interest on the Isle of Wight. Heading backstage, Clash and Right Guard managed to pin down The Strypes for an exclusive Off Guard Gigs live session.

Watch it now.
