The Fleas are a folk-rock band based in Reading, England. Although they’ve been described as sounding similar to bands like The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, or Elvis Costello, I think their sound is more heavily 70s influenced… conjuring bands like The Weight, The Kinks, or Buffalo Springfield.
The band appeared live and unplugged on BBC Radio 2 for Dermot O’Leary last month where they were able to talk a little bit about how the band came together. Check out their single “Born To Run” below and look out for their debut EP entitled “Telling Tales” available April 27th.
