Former Supergrass guitar dude Charly Coombes is rockin’ his merry way across the UK this fall, with a new band and a new EP. (You may also know Mr. Coombes as the keyboard player in The 22-20s.) Known as Charly Coombes & The New Breed, the group’s sound combines elements of Northern soul, garage rock, and indie pop, and despite their short time in existence, CCATNB have already shared the stage with The Coral and Dave Grohl. The group’s latest recording, the Waves EP, was produced by another Supergrass dude, Charly’s brother Gaz, lead Supergrass dude. Ahhhh! Keepin’ it in the family at its finest.
Waves EP is set for a November 29 release in the UK.
