The English alt-rock quartet The Extons released their début single I Won’t Leave Lonely on the 26th of October.
Having been around for a little while, the only surprise is that it has taken so long to surface with recorded material for those of us who haven’t had a chance to see their live shows – with good fortune that has now been rectified with the thumper of a track I Won’t Leave Lonely and I look forward to hearing more in short order.
The Extons deliver music for those who want a bit of roll with their rock as within the just over three and a third minutes of I Won’t Leave Lonely the listener is taken across seven decades of rock ‘n’ roll yet never straying from the point. Furious percussion is met by hard rock guitar with bass two stepping while vocal that reminds of Ray Davies soars around the room.
Declutter the furniture – grab a partner – turn up the volume, hit play and jive.
