Vlks V out now via iTunes, Spotify etc

‘Vlks V’ is our debut EP. It is out now. Described by The Guardian as combining “aching strings” with “pure Morrissey“, the debut EP is “a promisingly miserablist start”.

You can stream or buy the EP from all good digital outlets, including (but not limited to) iTunes, Spotify, 7 DigitalGoogle, Amazon….ETC.

Full press release from Vlks is below. Thank you for your support.

Vlks are a group of musicians from Chatham and London. Their debut EP is called ‘Vlks V’ and was recorded in 2012 with producer Jim Riley.  It is released on April 22nd 2013 via Believe Digital and will be available from all normal digital retailers.

Set to monochrome strings, Wall Of Sound drums and a soaring chorus, the lead track ‘Day Of Bees’ is a black and white kitchen-sink melodrama  concerning the hazardous task of putting your bins out during the English summer months. The EP is completed with ‘The Richard Cobden’, ‘Motown Funeral’ and ‘Pilates’, each following a similar lyrical fondness for describing the mundane but with a musical accompaniment squinting through smudged glasses directly up at the stars.

Vlks are David Goggin, Matthew Boorman, John Jennings, George Bacon and Ben Hogwood.  The first Vlks gig was in August 2012, and since then the group have supported The Wave Pictures and played high profile London gigs for Club Fandango, Club Spangle and the Kentish Town Bull & Gate. Further gigs are to be announced throughout the year. Goggin and Boorman were previously members of Brigadier Ambrose, whose flurry of singles received nationwide support on BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), BBC Radio 2 (Radcliffe & Maconie) and BBC 6 Music (Gideon Coe, Stuart Maconie and Tom Robinson).
