Sirocco is an upbeat indie/ alternative band from Newcastle who’ve been together since 2019.

They released their debut album ‘A Day In The Life’ in early 2020. Their range of influences throughout the band really shows in their music, with a mix of pop-punk, indie, and Britpop styles making their music unique and enjoyable.

Sirocco are:

Lewis Armstrong – Lead Vocals/Guitar
Josh Thurlow – Guitar/Backing Vocals
Aaron Tait – Drums
Will Turner – Bass

With their catchy indie melodies, distinct vocals, and a mixture of equal parts blues-rock and alternative-rock, Sirocco has developed a distinct and eclectic sound that is utterly compelling.

With their influences ranging from ‘70s punk right through to ‘90s indie-rock, this is a band not afraid to draw upon their inspirations to create a sound that is familiar yet completely their own.

The band has been able to collate together their individual influences to create a sound that is not only catchy and punchy but is mature, well-developed, and uncompromising.

The charismatic new single, “Be My Saturday”, features fiery indie-rock riffs delivered by powerful, overdriven guitars as Sirocco release their first song of the year, setting the groundwork for their explosive return to live shows again.

Having played venues such as Think Tank, Think Tank Underground, The Globe, and Surf Café, Sirocco now set their sights on playing further afield via a re-scheduled tour with dates between September and November, seeing them appear at Hyde Park Book Club (Leeds), The Amsterdam (Glasgow), The Castle Hotel (Manchester), Trinity Bar (London – Fri 10th Sept), and The Cluny (Newcastle – 11th Sept).

Turning attention to the story behind the song, Sirocco reveal:
“There’s the typical love story there; boy meets girl at a party. The girl is mad for him but it takes him a while to realise as he’s too hooked up on getting drunk with his mates. But really there’s more to the boy than what meets the eye…”
