Reliably informed

Nothing sums up Leeds-based Envoys quite like their song Ego Is A Man Killer, a seven minute musical skate across unfamiliar ice, not knowing whether your next stride will be your last; the track keeps you guessing right until the end. The vocals don’t kick in until we hit the five minute mark and when you take a spin along their self-produced, self-released debut album Violescent; it becomes clear we have here a set of musicians who throw everything behind sound, rather than over producing another catchy hit for the radio.

Music defining labels fall short here as Violescent sees two beautiful guitars blend intricately throughout, with the bass going above and beyond it’s rhythm duties by providing it’s own groove – all tied together with a steady, tightly wound drum beat. This four strong set of talented musicians are bringing their unique blend of Math Rock to Stockton’s Sound It Out Records for what will be their debut North East appearance. Be sure not to miss it.

Envoys play at Sound It Out Records, Stockton on Sunday 15th February.
