Video: People Like You

People Like You are an eclectic group of rabble rousers from Portsmouth, USA, making a brand of folk rock that is very different to the stuff heard from the usual crowd.

By Jane Howkins

The band are a little like Skinny Lister and Gogol Bordello mixed together, with an extra element of vaudeville and burlesque added into the mix. That might sound a bit strange at first, but it all works surprisingly well, with what might be classified as an Eastern European sound emerging from the American band.

Why Say Why? is wonderfully eccentric, and this band deserve to be heard. Have a listen to the track here:
