The start of 2017 brought a brand new band announcement, formed from two of Sheffield’s best basement, underground bands, Stop Drop Robot & Monoking, Vuromantic’s was born. The band is made up of Ben Rooker, Jordan Rooker, Sam Christie, Jake Christie and Callum Hall.
The band have wasted no time in releasing their EP ‘Waiting On A Storm’ out in February and have already got a tour scheduled. The EP release surpasses dark and brooding indie electro and indicates a real sign of things to come from the Sheffield band who have been garnering hefty praise in reviews and attention since the release of ‘Vultures’.
‘Waiting On A Storm’ is written about starting a new chapter in life and features piano, synthesizers, bass, and drums. There’s a great tempo running through this track and some tight sounding instrumentation. A atmospheric and powerful song, it’s one that feels slightly more upbeat, compared to ‘Vultures’ with an ’80s leaning feel to it.
‘Vultures’ has a distinctly despondent feel to it which seems to pour over very lyric. Intense and dark, the single captures intensity whilst Sam Christie’s haunting vocals tell the story of what I can only describe as that of being alone or suffering from drug addiction.
One thing is definitely certain the band have an exciting year ahead, this EP is certainly whetting and inflaming the appetite for an album release.
We’l be catching up with the band soon for a more in depth chat about what lies ahead in 2017.
