Vuromantics to release ‘In The Night’ EP on 20 October on Alya Records.
“Stunning! I’ve no idea what will come out next from these guys and that’s exciting,” – BBC Introducing
“Shimmering synth textures and giant choruses,” – Exposed Magazine
Vuromantics are Sam Christie (vocals), Jake Christie (guitar, keyboard), Callum Hall (bass, synth), Ben Rooker (synth) and Sergio Ali (drums).
The band’s ‘northern dark pop’ is fully realised on their new EP, ‘In The Night’, to be released on 20 October on Alya Records.
Beginning with 20 tracks, the band condensed this catalogue of songs into a five-track capsule that spans influences from Pulp, to Future Islands, to Client Liaison – an offering of skill in electronic music and an appreciation for their individual talents. A blend of genres delicately crafted to intrigue and educate the listener.
This authenticity for the industry and music they love extends to a grassroots campaign built by the band for their audience – a direct DIY approach.
Recorded at Junior Park Studios in their hometown, Sheffield, echoes of its music legends can be found throughout the EP; from ‘Questions’, to ‘Not Over You’, it teems with The Human League’s 80s output – deep, smooth vocals over instrumentation that’s captivating, interchangeable, and most of all – refreshing. Approaching these tracks from a side of love that isn’t always represented in traditional songwriting, these particular tracks deal with not knowing how to approach love and fighting against lingering feelings.
“Working with Will Stocks at Junior Park as a producer is great, as he creates a really relaxing environment where you can indulge your creative side, instead of having to constantly feel like you need to watch the clock,” says Sam. Although brothers Sam and Jake initially intended to team up and write songs for the sole purpose of synchronisation in TV and film, they quickly realised the desire to play live couldn’t be ignored. Their sound built for a live setting – having consistently toured since March this year from the north to the south of the UK, Scotland and Wales – all before playing in their hometown.
Only 6 months in, Vuromantics in their infancy as a band have attracted the attention of BBC Introducing, with York Calling saying: “pure party songs about love’s power sung with the conviction and charm of a gospel preacher,” and Reyt Good Music Magazine saying: “One sleekly bombastic anthem after another, baiting the crowd into a frenzy.”
