WATCH THIS! Berries ‘cranked garage and spellbinding distortion’

We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of BERRIES’ new video “Wild Vow” the first single taken from their second EP which is due out later this year.
BERRIES recent single sees the band further explore their unique take on riff-driven rock with even more grit and confidence. “Wild Vow” boasts big riffs and chorus’s and further highlights the clever musicianship, weaving guitar and bass lines and well thought out drum patterns that this exciting three-piece are becoming known for.
The band have had an infectious buzz around them ever since they dropped their first release “Lights” last year, followed by singles “Waiting” and “Siren”. Their tracks immediately caught the attention of BBC London Introducing and they were hastily invited into the studio for an interview with Gary Crowley who openly showed his support for the band urging listeners to “keep an ear and an eye out for them as they have a lot of promise!” The bands tracks have also received regular air play by Jim Gellatly and Shell Zenner on Amazing Radio, Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music and John Kennedy on Radio X.
Following the release of their debut EP Those Funny Things the band were approached by a member of Fender’s A&R team who expressed his interest in their unique and energetic playing style. They were endorsed with new gear and included in a playlist of Fender’s ‘Top 10 favourite new acts’ alongside Bryde and featured on Richer Unsigned. Their song “Siren” was then added to nationwide playlists in Richer Sounds stores, Samsung and Barclays. The band’s EP has been championed by Fred Perry Subculture, Gigslutz, Even the Stars and The Revue along with several other influential taste makers and blogs. “Wild Vow” is their anticipated follow-up single.
The band say
“Wild Vow” is the first single taken from our second EP. We have cranked up the distortion and gone slightly heavier with the riffs and drums – the lyrics bring with them a delicious hint of dry sarcasm based around hidden layers and warped expectations. We are really enjoying the direction of this new track and can’t wait for our next Headline show with Scruff of The Neck on 19th October at The Black Heart in Camden!”
