VLLNS, are a three piece band from Dublin, Ireland have just released their debut single “The Devil & The Deep Sea”.
“Somehow managing to sound both loose and tight in delivering their sound, the chorus is made ear-catching with its quick-fire bass-lines and thudding percussion, and the final third sees some bang on blues riffs to top it all off.”
“A track that bodes well for the fuller release with a contained energy that pumps its way around the room on the backbone of a powerful trotting percussion, prior to picking up the reigns with the tempo rising.”
“Frayed guitar is given space to take the spotlight giving the song, along with the vocal, its dirty blues infusion that takes the listener to a sawdust strewn bar-room while the bass is working on such loose strings it is possible to catch their sound of recoil as they slap back in to place, which minds of a saloon-bar swing door creaking on its hinges.”
VLLNS have completed a number of shows in some of Dublin’s well known venues and have released their debut track on January 1st 2018.
The group who formed in mid 2016, can be described as a band who are firmly gripped within the sounds of Blues Rock, and Alternative Rock, with common likeness’ to bands such as Kings Of Leon and The Black Keys. Often remembered as an effects heavy driven band, who do not have a bass player instead favoring the use of effects units to get their desired sound.
The band have been working on their debut single, along with their accompanying EP “Sentiments” since the Summer of 2017, and finally released their long awaited debut single ‘The Devil & the Deep Sea’ on all websites and apps such as Spotify, SoundCloud and iTunes.
The band is set for a whirlwind year of promoting and gigging with multiple gigs to be announced this year. VLLNS have hosted their own Single launch event, which took place in The Bello Bar, Dublin on January 6th, in which they were supported by some of Dublin’s best upcoming artists.
