NEO MUSICA: The Overtones


POP / DOO-WOOP

português: Composto por cinco membros - três ingleses, um irlandês e um australiano -, o grupo THE OVERTONES se formou em 2010. Eles foram descobertos por um olheiro da gravadora Warner Music enquanto trabalhavam como pintores em uma loja e cantavam no horário de descanso. O primeiro álbum, entitulado “Good Ol’ Fashioned Love”, ficou em #16 na parada britânica e foi relançado em 2011, chegando ao #4 e já tendo conquistado certificado de platina. Com um estilo bem marcante e com vocais invejáveis, o grupo está fazendo grande sucesso no Reino Unido. A proposta de vocais Doo-Wop, cantando músicas com uma pegada anos 50 e 60 com elementos R&B, transforma o quinteto em uma arma letal.

english:  The Overtones are a five-piece British-Irish doo-wop boy band from London, formed in 2010. They were discovered by a Warner Brothers talent scout while working as decorators in a shop near Oxford Street, singing during their tea break. Their debut album Good Ol' Fashioned Love entered the UK Albums Chart at #16 in November 2010. However, after the re-release of the album in March 2011, it propelled to #4. With four members originally - Mark Franks, Mike Crawshaw, Darren Everest and Timmy Matley - the band had been performing for several years. The four all shared an interest in the doo-wop genre of the 1950s mixed with R&B and modern pop music. Later, they met Lachie Chapman, discovered similar tastes in music and reformed themselves as a five-piece band. Everest then had the idea of starting a painting and decorating company so that the five could practice together while working. It was while painting a shop near Oxford Street in London that the band were discovered by a talent scout. They have since signed a multi-album deal with Warner Bros. Records.
