Electrifying British band formed by Mike Scott, with a sound ranging from Celtic folk to rock and roll.The Waterboys belong to no movement, genre, school or fashion. They follow the twists and trails of the music wherever it leads, wherever the adventure unfolds. That adventure has inspired three decades of musical shape-shifting, including the magnificent eleventh album, Modern Blues. It’s electric, eclectic, soulful, bold and gloriously freewheeling rock'n'roll, that evokes the very best of The Waterboys past work while forging forth to explore new ground.Few bands have changed as much as this one. Formed in 1983 by frontman Mike Scott, The Waterboys’ first three albums sculpted a layered post-punk sound, culminating in 1985’s sky-scraping This is the Sea. Since then the music has never ceased to evolve, with the group incorporating elements of Celtic folk, gospel, country and rock. As Scott says, with The Waterboys it’s always best to expect the unexpected.
