One To Watch - Missing Andy
Missing Andy are Essex born and bred and extremely proud of it.
The five-piece are part of today’s growing disenfranchised youth and their ‘fist in the air’ songs deal with thorny social issues that a lot of other bands choose to shy away from.
Their thought provoking lyrics and their swaggering stance is cut from the same cloth as The Jam and The Clash, with an air of The Specials, making their sound a contradiction of modern nostalgia, fuelled by angst-ridden aggression.
Mod requiem ‘Kings For The Weekend’ is an anthemic, no frills behemoth of a song with its pile-driving rhythms and the super burst of crashing guitars.
The single will be available to download from the 3rd July, and their debut album will be released later this year.

Vocals - Alex Greaves,
Keys - Jonathan Sharpe,
Bass – Rob Jones,
