The Checks

Videos

It is one of the music industry's cruel conundrums. Some bands can do what they do, do it damn well, and do it to absolute oblivion without so much as ever tasting a sorry smidge of success in their lives. And while it is certainly a sad tale, it isn't one The Checks need acquaint themselves with anytime in the near future. No, this Carnaby Street craving New Zealand five piece consisting of Ed Knowles, Karrel Chabera, Jacob Moore, Sven Pettersen and Callum Martin have garnered themselves a critical killing, almost from the very get go of their existence. Having met singing in barbershop quartet competitions, an obvious teenage facelift was in order. Now, only two years later, The Checks are a comet-hot, cucumber-cool electric blues and boogey outfit that have been hand picked by Michael Stipe to support REM, impressed Sub Pop boss Jonathan Poneman, won the praise of NME editor Conor McNicholas, and is now busy racking up fans the world over with their blistering live show and a pair of singles, Hunting Whales and What You Heard. – David Pitz
