We are the unmistakable clang of Joe Strummer swinging a Telecaster into the face of the Gallagher brothers. We are the uncompromising roar of adolescence and the unflinching result of boredom in the countryside. We are three teenagers with no desire to get proper jobs. We are The Doctorates.
With an undertone of scabby imperfections surrounding vicious and impossibly infectious hooks, we write simple, primal indie-punk tunes that after one chorus, anyone can chant back at us. Our debut single, ‘Backseat’ pins a catchy guitar riff to a messy, punchy melody, expressing an unshakable hatred for those who expect the world handed to them on a silver platter.
For fans of The Clash, Spector, The Vaccines, The Hives, Slaves, General Fiasco, Oasis or filthy dubstep jams, we may just be your cup of tea.
