About The Retrospectives

From the British invasion bands of the 60's to the punk and new wave of the 70's, The Retrospectives were raised on the music of their parents. Inspired by the likes of Elvis Costello, The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty, this energetic three-piece have spent the last two years touring relentlessly, driven by a belief that guitars still have a vital place in popular music. Sheffield has long been home to one of the country's most vibrant music scenes and named by Q Magazine as one of the city's top 5 bands to watch, The Retrospectives are now at the forefront. Following the addition of Paul Jackson on drums, 2013 was their biggest year to date. The release of their new EP 'Turn Me Up' saw them take to the stage supporting The Boomtown Rats, Night Engine and Paper Aeroplanes, as well as opening for Bruce Foxton's 'From The Jam' at a sold out show at the famous Cavern Club In Liverpool. Described by Stereoboard as 'Songwriters with an ability to combine lyrics and melody with rare precision' and having landed themselves a place in BBC Introducing Sheffield's top ten tracks of the year, it's clear their hook-laden, off-kilter, power-pop is starting to turn heads in the right places. After kicking off the new year with another 'From The Jam' support slot (this time at ABC in Glasgow), The Retrospectives are gearing up to make a massive impact in 2014 and with a single release, headline tour and a support slot with The Buzzcocks already in place, it's set to be an exciting year. Vintage Guitar Pop from Sheffield. New single 'Confusion' out 29th June.
