Cavan band The Strypes has as good a 2012 as about any other Irish band. They released their debut EP Young, Gifted & Blue before the start of the summer to much acclaim. Fast forward less than twelve months and the band have played a rake of festival dates at home and abroad, toured across the world, joined Elton John's management company, signed a multi-album deal with Mercury Records and been praised by the likes of Paul Weller and Dave Grohl...all before even sitting their leaving cert.

The band yesterday put out their latest video for new single 'Blue Collar Jane', shot by Finn Keenan. Have a gander below.
