The Overtones are a five-piece British-Irish doo-wop boy band from London, formed in 2010. They were discovered by a Warner Brothers talent scout while working as decorators in a shop near Oxford Street, singing during their tea break. Their debut album Good Ol’ Fashioned Love entered the UK album chart at number 40 on its release on November 1, following 5,371 sales in its first week.
The Overtones blend classic '50s harmonies with modern pop. As well as inspired interpretations of hits from yesteryear, including The Darts' ‘Come Back My Love’ and The Chords’ ‘SH-Boom (Life Could Be A Dream)’, The Overtones’ impressive armoury includes the co-written ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’ - the title track of their 2010 album - and their own timeless compositions ‘Carolyn’ and showstopper ‘Gambling Man’.
