Vuromantics are Sam Christie (vocals), Jake Christie (guitar, keyboard), Callum Hall (bass, synth), Ben Rooker (synth) and Daniel Battye (drums).
The band’s ‘northern dark pop’ was fully realised on their latest EP, ‘In The Night’, which was released on October 20th on Alya Records.
Now the band follow up their EP with a brand new single entitled ‘Gold And Blue’, opting to release the single as a free download. Sam Christie of the band says: “It’s something we haven’t done before and with us pushing further into many new areas on our upcoming tour its going to be a great opportunity for new people to discover Vuromantics”
The bands authenticity for the industry and music they love extends to a grassroots campaign built by the band for their audience – a direct DIY approach.
When asked about ‘Gold And Blue’; Jake Christie of the band said “It’s got that 80’s Gary Numan & Talking Heads vibe going for it. What we did was adapt the track more to sound studio quality with real time drums and huge layered up vocals”. Callum Hall of the band added “We have been gigging this track live for sometime, you can really hear the progression in this”

Recorded at Junior Park Studios in their hometown, Sheffield, Gold And Blue’s echoes of Sheffield music legends can be found within their music; it teems with The Human League’s electronic pop output – deep, smooth vocals over instrumentation that’s captivating, interchangeable, and most of all – refreshing as the band deliver a wonk funky synthpop taste of whats to come in 2018.
Only 10 months into their infancy as a band have attracted the attention of Exposed Magazine – “shimmering synth textures and giant choruses” , with York Calling saying: “pure party songs about love’s power sung with the conviction and charm of a gospel preacher,” and Reyt Good Music Magazine saying: “One sleekly bombastic anthem after another, baiting the crowd into a frenzy.”
