John J Presley releases new single Left

John J Presley is an English gent with a penchant for fuzz. Sonically a modern day Tom Waits with a full back catalogue of Kills records, and a nod to the songwriting mastery of Nick Cave. It is a story of breaking the mould, a love affair with tone and a strict discipline and desire to create something a bit different. 

Some say think Jack White meets Tom Waits. We say it is its own beast. Alongside the unmistakable guitar tone of Presley are driving bass lines from a Fender Rhodes, warm vocal harmonies and thick drones from John and his band have already been on tour with the likes The Jim Jones Revue on their last UK tour and shared stages with Band of Skulls, Wet Nuns, Dolomite Minor TOY, and Joe Gideon and the Shark to name a The track has already been gaining airplay from the likes of Radio 1’s Zane Lowe as his ‘Next Hype’ and Jen and Ally’s BBC Radio 1’s introducing show as well as XFM’s John Kennedy (X-Posure Big One). 

If Bukowski was to join a band of our time I think it’d be this one. The vocals remind you of Tom Waits or Johnny Cash, while the guitars have the same drive, as Jack White’s or the Black Keys do, only much dirtier."
