Vlks X release confirmedPosted: August 8, 2013
The new Vlks EP ‘Vlks X’ will be released on September 23rd 2013.
It carries on from where the debut release left off – the lead track ‘Clutter’ lamenting damp on the skirting boards against a monochrome chamber-pop backing track of weeping strings and Serge Gainsbourg percussion.
Vlks’ debut EP (‘Vlks V’) was released in April 2013 to nationwide critical acclaim – its lead track ‘Day Of Bees’ described by The Guardian as a ‘promisingly miserabilist start – a neat line in elegiac melodrama and camply overblown lyrics’ whilst being compared to Wild Beasts and The Smiths and receiving airplay via BBC Introducing.
Vlks have since supported The Wave Pictures and more recently Still Corners at London’s XOYO and will be headlining their first London show at The Sebright Arms on September 26th, through Parallel Lines Promotions (The National, Wild Beasts, Daughn Gibson, Parquet Courts, Sky Larkin). Tickets can be bought from here.
