Introducing: The Underclass

Introducing Stoke’s finest, The Underclass 

Hailing from Stoke-On-Trent, The Underclass are known for their brit-pop infused music and Liam Gallagher-esque vocals. As they become one of the most well-known bands in the Midlands with a brand new member they’re set to storm the country with their musical charm. We spoke with the band. 

Who and which bands do you think you, as a band, are most influenced by?

As a band, all our influences vary a lot but our influences can all be heard through parts of songs. We all hold different influences whether that being along the lines of The Verve, Stereophonics, The Beatles or Foo Fighters, Guns n Roses, and The Prodigy

Your latest single ‘For You’ had a great reception, do you think that’s your most successful single so far?

In many ways, it is yeah, but they’re all someone’s favourite which always a good thing to hear. We think it’s definitely the best sounding song we’ve brought out so far. However, we have some absolutely huge stuff in future plans in terms of new music.

Have you had the opportunity to write more songs during lockdown?

At the beginning of lockdown we weren’t really able to write anything as we lost all inspiration from being bored out our skulls. We’ve all written and developed parts for our previously existing songs and making them sound massive. Some big tunes coming your way

Being from Stoke, do you take pride in the fact that you are one of the faces of the Stoke music scene?

Yeah, we do but we don’t want to. We’re proud of where we come from and putting Stoke back on the map, where it deserves to be is one of the reasons we’re doing what we’re doing. Stoke has a strong scene of bands who kept our venues going before Coronavirus – to the point that bands who aren’t even from stoke use it as there go-to place. Which shows how much it’s growing.
