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.

The latest release by this Brighton five-piece and signee’s to Liverpool’s famed Deltasonic Records 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 is named for 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, and hopefully their first U.S. shows aren’t too far off.

Enigmatic, Brighton-bred, five-piece White Room release their double EP “Eight”, a conceptual creation which intertwines through its lyrical and sonic themes. Guitars gleam and choruses glide, wedding the transcendental nous of quirky, genre-bending bands such as Talking Heads and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to the heady, insouciant appeal of Primal Scream.

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.
