Discovery: Joe By The Book

Joe By The Book are an indie band from Leeds who creates soulful rock in their new track A Little For My Sake.

By Graeme Smith

A Little For My Sake starts with a looping guitar riff that becomes somewhat trance-like by the time lead singer Ed Allen’s earthy vocals drift in. The main theme comes and goes, interspersed with jazzy, troubadour-esque interludes creating an interesting, textured performance.

Joe By The Book will find fans among anyone who’s a fan of Arctic Monkeys or any of Alex Turner’s side projects. It’s great to hear a local act producing such accomplished and interesting indie rock. Check out A Little For My Sake below.
