Wax Lyrical is Doc Freighter’s Single

As soon as I pressed the play button I immediately appreciated the typically English sound and compositional style of this band.

Doc Freighter’s songs bring with them all the artistic culture of their nation.

In this tune, I heard vibes of The Cure, Oasis, The Verve, and many other bands that have marked the history of rock.

However, these guys managed to modernize the sound and their music is unique and original.

I really liked the acid and direct sound of the guitars… a little raw which makes their musical vision even more credible.

You can feel that Doc Freighter spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve this enviable musical chemistry.

A great discovery that I recommend everyone to go and listen to.

Doc Freighter is the hottest new band making waves in the underground London music scene. Formed off the back of the Covid pandemic, the band, consisting of frontman and songwriter, James Burridge, alongside Zsolt Benko (bass) and Ollie Bruce (drums) have quickly gained a dedicated follower-base which show in numbers to all shows, selling out coaches and packing high capacity London venues.

The “Dartford Rockers” blend elements of old and new, combining anthemic indie choruses, vintage-infused guitar solos, vibrant youthful vocals and catchy melodic bass lines, a familiar sound, yet unmistakably; Doc Freighter.

Credited influences range from early 60’s britpop icons; such as The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Kinks, 80’s indie rock; Echo & the Bunnymen, through to much newer and well-loved indie-rock bands such as; Arctic Monkeys.

Having only formed this year, Doc Freighter is set for success, having progressed from playing small pubs and venues in their home town to now headlining much larger London-based shows.

    We managed to catch Doc Freighter at the iconic indie music venue; The Hope & Anchor, Islington, London. Whilst billed as performing a 45 minute set, they actually played for well over an hour with the fans at the very packed venue being highly energised, literally screaming for more and refusing to take no for an answer. The 3 piece rose to the occasion belting out what I can only describe as hit after hit of incredible sounding, unique material… including the above mentioned Wax Lyrical.

    I never had the oportunity to witness the Beetles or the kinks live, however your comparison to the arctic monkeys and the verve is absolutely on point. These guys did not just show up and play, they were fresh, vibrant, energetic and they put on a performance. They lit up what was, a dark club stage in a dark club basement and somehow managed to reach into the souls of all present and engage, switch on. Our party left the event feeling that we may have witnessed the beginning of something very special that we may one day look back upon and say “We were there”. Revolutionary, evolutionary, I cannot say, but Indie really needed a rocket up its ass and it may well have just got it!

    I want to buy the debut album (right now), I want to see them on the bigger stage, I want to witness them at major music festivals be it basking in the sun or soaking in the rain…

  2. My pleasure Poe, I was caught somewhere between the highs of having just left the club and the inevitable lows of the oncoming hangover.

    I am a massive rock fan and enjoy the darker rock that you guys seem to represent but am not so much a fan of Edgar Allen Poe. Broadly speaking the British are not very tolerant of middle-age-men that marry either young children, close family members, or both. Am not picking on EAP; in the mid-century, Jerry Lee Lewis would have experienced his balls being introduced to the pointy end of a fiery poker.
