The Vryll Society: In addition to the late, great Viola Beach, Vryll Society have been touring with Blossoms and their psych rock with vocals that touch on earl Verve and John Squire-esque guitars is the perfect accompaniment for chilling out at a hedonistic sunny festival. Their set to play all over the festival circuit this summer with dates yet to be announced.

One thing the Vryll Society aren’t short of is admirers, lauded at just about every turn by press and public alike, the release of their debut lp for Deltasonic records is hotly anticipated thanks to the promise this band have shown through their live sets and recent single releases.

Discovered and nurtured by the late and much missed Deltasonic founder Alan Wills, they fitted the type for him perfectly. he instantly saw in them similar attributes he’d previously found in the early days of the Coral and the Zutons. the confident swagger, the solid union formed by their band-of-brothers gang mentality, their willingness to stand outside the conventional and often stifling jangly liverpool scene, and the work ethic. always the work ethic. Wills instilled in the Vryll Society something which has become over the ensuing years a key element of what they are, what they’ve become, and of the music they produce. he gave them belief. a belief that hard work and determination will bring them to the place they wanted to reach. “Alan taught us that all you need to conquer the world is a rehearsal room, your instruments, a good work ethic and a positive attitude and you’ll get there. he kind of taught us the rules and the attributes that you need to have to be successful so we’ve just continued on that path” says frontman Mike Ellis. Ellis has stated that it was that attitude and that work ethic which got them through the subsequent tragic loss of their friend and manager in 2014, driving them forward through those times, propelling them to harder work, and bonding them even closer together as a unit. that unit have spent the intervening time creating and honing their own brand new-psych sound, and building up a fanbase with their superlative live shows. drawing from an eclectic palette of influence from deep funk to krautrock, electronica and prog, they’ve created a heady, intoxicating, pin sharp, and tightly wound mellifluous groove, washed over with cyclical motifs, acres of effects laden guitar hooks, and shimmering, textural technicolour soundscapes. it is at once blissful, dizzying and madly infectious.

it’s that eclecticism, that kaleidoscopic swirl of influences which brings together hip hop flavours, with the prog stylings of names such as aphrodite’s child and the verve – pre urban hymns – when the drugs were still working. the dynamic leaps and folds through all these influences is where you find the vryll society’s own brand perfect pop. its all there in the loops, in the hooks, the drive and the vibe of this unique band. but this isn’t frippery, these aren’t throwaway cheap thrills for our disposable times. no, this is heavier. this is music too feed your head. live too, the Vryll Society are a formidable force. that gang mentality binds them together over the ideas formed by spending long hours together in the rehearsal every day.

Hotwiring these ideas into the heads of the crowd through extended psych jams and deep solid grooves gives a different show every time, and with each and every set, the offer gets better. recent travels have seen them take sxsw 2017 by storm as guests of bbc introducing as well as major festivals such as Glastonbury and Leeds/Reading. the songs that fill the delicious grooves of course of the satellite weren’t so much written as devised or developed, brought together organically over months in the band’s underground lair, or over weeks in Liverpool’s Parr Street studios. working closely with producers, Wills’ right hand man and Deltasonic brother-in-arms Joe Fearon and Tom Longworth, the album took shape organically, biding its time and finding its way. the result is a work of impressive confidence and stature. it’s a record that believes in itself, and for all the right reasons. this is an effortlessly cool album, the sort of record that makes friends easily. the world is ready, willing and more than able to take the vryll society even deeper to their heart. the path Alan Wills showed them awaits. it’s a path that leads to greatness.

‘Light at the Edge of the World’ is here.
The new single from The Vryll Society premiered last week with Huw Stephens giving the track a spin on BBC Radio 1. DIY magazine have described the track as “Blending elements of Space Rock, Trip Hop and Psychedelia.”  The upcoming album, ‘Course of the Satellite’ is now available.

White Room have a knack for crafting songs which carefully tips their hat to their influences whilst illustrating their own future is making them a force to be reckoned with each and every release. With Paul Weller amongst their fans, the quintet have built up a steady fan base from trawling up and down the country playing numerous gigs and festivals. And after nailing support slots with The Rifles and the aforementioned Modfather.

Filmed at The Loft in their native Brighton, the striking visuals experiment with a plethora of camera angles in a presumed attempt to make the viewer feel like they are immersed in the cable built dreamland setting alluded to in the track’s title. Signed to the fabulous Deltasonic Records who keep on going from strength to strength are just days away from another appearance at The Great Escape Festival, again in their coastal hometown, where last year they obliterated The Hope and Ruin with their fuzzy and frenetic sonic delivery – and the threat of the floor falling through the ceiling.

Psychedelic would be the obvious genre to immediately try and pigeonhole the five-piece to, cut the band in half like a stick of rock and it’s arguable the standout component that runs through their veins, but scratch a little deeper below the surface and strands of rock, indie and even inflects of pop start to echo their way to the forefront as they compete to become your new favourite band.

Liverpool psych-pop five-piece The Vryll Society have released a new single, “Andrei Rublev.”

The band are currently working on their debut album, and have released a series of singles and an EP titled Pangea through famed Liverpool indie label Deltasonic Records (The Coral, The Zutons, White Room). The band recently supported The Kooks, Blossoms and The Coral in the U.K., and they also made an appearance at last year’s SXSW festival in Austin.

Their stunningly beautiful new song, “Andrei Rublev” is as mellowing as it is hypnotic, with frontman Mike Ellis’ calming lead vocals, their kraut-rock rhythm section, lush synth soundscapes and intricate psych guitar lines. The song’s raw power sneaks up on listeners with its trotting bass line and shimmering Procol Harum-esque keyboards before it erupts with euphoric sonic textures and biting guitar solos.

The Vryll Society’s new track’s title refers to a 1966 Soviet historical drama of the same name, directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. The band is due to play Brighton’s Great Escape Festival in May and Liverpool International Music Festival in July.

The latest release by this promising Brighton five-piece and signee’s to Liverpool’s excellent Deltasonic Records which was a double EP and a concept record of sorts entitled Eight, released last December. The double-EP contains touches of ‘60s classic psych (the group are named after  a Cream song, after all), rock and contemporary synth-pop. Jake Smallwood and Josie McNamara intermingle vocals brilliantly, as on the devilishly catchy chorus of “Stole the I.V.” The EP’s kaleidoscopic, escapist lyrics mixed with dreamy soundscapes via distorted guitars and transcendent synths make for an overwhelmingly compelling listen. White Room have supported the legendary Paul Weller back in the UK,

Enter the White Room. Inside you’ll find a serrated blend of sky-gaze psychedelia and raucous distortion. The Brighton-based five-piece have already won plaudits for their compelling live shows. Released last year after support slots for Weller and acclaimed performances at Reading and Leeds, their debut EP ‘Fizzy Liquid’ was described by NME as ‘driving, and pretty lawless’. This year White Room will play Dot to Dot, The Great Escape and Live at Leeds, with many more to be announced at a later date.

White Room’s astonishing live show has transformed them into one of the country’s most sought after unsigned bands. With a flurry of labels on their trail, White Room have opted to sign to Deltasonic, and this relationship is already bearing fruit. Following a highly successful summer of festivals including IOW Y Not and Reading and Leeds, where they earned plaudits for their enigmatic and at times raucous live sets.

White Room say “We’re thrilled to be a part the Deltasonic family, joining a long line of great acts. Excited to evolve and grow in this new environment…”

New double EP ‘Eight’ is incoming, and it’s set to be something special, as the band explain: In ‘Eight’ we are offering a way to lose yourself; find an escape, and to embrace the intrinsic ability music has to take you away from the harsh realities of life…First, though, White Room want to showcase new double A-side single ‘The Blue’ b/w ‘Tomorrow Always Knew’.

It’s superb psychedelic pop music with a touch of dirt under its fingernails, the two songs show both sides of White Room’s lysergic vision.
