Dexters will release their debut single ‘Recover’ on 19th November on This Feeling Records and will tour across the UK this September and October.

Dexters are Tom Rowlett (vocals), Chris Heggie (guitars, BV’s), Ben Debo (lead guitar, BV’s), Vincent Dignan (bass, BV’s) and Chris Mardon (drums). The band formed in 2011 after growing up together on estates in the rougher part of East London.

Their sound merges their wide range of influences from the melodies of The La’s to the sheer punk, visceral aggression of The Clash and The Specials and the narrative packed lyrics of The Kinks.

Debut single ‘Recover’ is 3-minutes of brash drums and jangling guitars backed by catchy vocals and a huge chorus. Produced by Jamie Ellis (Paul Epworth / Chapel Club) and mixed by Duncan Mills (The Vaccines / Beastie Boys / MGMT), it is a massive guitar anthem and the perfect introduction to the band. Confident, rampant and energetic; this is Dexters.

The video was shot on an East London estate in lead singer Tom Rowlett’s parent’s house and was filmed during a raucous house party where the band performed for friends and fans.

Dexters are currently working on their debut album which will be released in 2013. The band will also be touring the UK this September and October and will be performing as part of the This Feeling tour along with support shows with The Enemy. Full dates are as follows;
