Guitar bands, it seems, have faded somewhat in to obscurity over the last few years. Overshadowed by a sudden onslaught of synth-driven disco pop, the “boys in bands” mentality shrunk beneath the brim of it's trilby, allowing for a far more electronically disposed mindset to come to the fore. Things look set to change however, as bands such as Eagulls, Drowners and SKATERS are bringing in a new wave of guitar bands. One such band perpetuating the ideas of a dual-syllabic band names are London's Dexters.
