The 27 showcase their 3-part harmonies

British rock four-piece The 27 are set to release their rootsy debut single ‘Call Me A Friend’, which has been produced by The Next Room (Lady Leshurr, Snoop Dogg) and marks a meeting of authentic vintage and forward thinking contemporary sounds.

The video for Call Me A Friend, which was filmed in Amy Winehouse’s former Camden house, features Page 3 model Rhian Sugden's debut as a ‘lovie’ and the contents of a dressing up box.

The 27 don’t mind if their music takes you back in time. “The internet has brought pop’s past back to life” says 23 year old singer, songwriter and guitarist Henry Parker.  They salute their debt to the rock of yesteryear, tip their hat to classic country in their three-part harmonies and are adamant in their refusal to use autotune. “It’s a fresh take on old sounds,” says Henry.

The 27 may be a new band, but for Henry, their rootsy first single, Call Me A Friend, is the result of six eventful years spent seeking like-minded musicians, searching for a sound and experiencing the highs, lows and heartbreak you’ll hear in his lyrics. Along the way, he has played covers in pubs on David Bowie’s vintage Gibson guitar, shared stages with country music star Margo Price, travelled to Nashville to write, recorded an ill-fated album in L.A. while living in the laundry room of a hair salon and spent a summer working as a guitar tech, prepping Coldplay’s guitars for a tour.

The 27 are as much about stories as they are about songs, as in thrall to the present as they are to the past, as serious as they are silly.  They’re on a mission to make real music, but they’re out to have a damn good time whilst they’re at it.

The 27 Are: - Lead Vocals and Guitar: Henry Parker; Guitarist and Vocals: Tom Michell; Guitarist and Vocals: David Page and Drums: Alex Tschaikowsky
