The Takeover UK, hailing from the exotic land of Pittsburgh, PA is hitting the road in support of their Rykodisc debut “Running with the Wasters” due out on March 24th.
The foursome perform a raucous blend of pop smattered with a bratty dose of punk rock rebellion. Huge hooks and smashing choruses flirt with one another in songs such as “Ah La La,” while the band’s inherent charm shines through in tracks, “Evelyn” and “The Lonely Ones.” The Takeover UK are as charismatic on record as they are live, with an astonishing ability to craft scores of classic songs that make people move.
