One of the best things about writing for Stereofox is the fact that I can sit in bed listening to new music and pretend I'm doing something productive. Fortunately, my laziness pays off every now and again as I find awesome new bands. Enter Story Books.
These guys from Kent (more specifically the Isle of Sheppey) have been producing amazing and powerful alternative music that sort of encapsulates Britain's industrial underbelly and teen culture (check out the video for their track 'Simple Kids'). Latest track 'White Maid' is a slow builder, intertwining plucked acoustic, deep bass and a haunting string section, only to break into a sort of electronic/ industrial feel that I was talking about up there. 'White Maid' is taken from upcoming EP From Post To Post due out in March and will be supported by a UK tour. Check their website for details!
