Viola Beach

THE long-awaited return of Warrington indie-pop quartet, Viola Beach will be crowned on 22nd January when they drop latest single, Boys That Sing.

The single will be their debut release on Communion's Singles Club and will mark the launch of the new label.

Produced by Ian Grimble, who has previously worked with Catfish and The Bottlemen and Mumford & Sons, the track re-captures the same fun-loving Summer sound of their debut release, Swings and Waterslides.

From first featuring the band two years ago, it's clear that the four lads have worked tirelessly on tightening up those harmonies and making a name for themselves in the industry - already seeing them tipped in Annie Mac's New Names for 2016 and recording a Radio 1 session at Maida Vale Studios.

Introducing with a light, rolling beat from Jack Dakin, front-man Kris Leonard provides an almighty zany riff, beautifully partnered with his softly purred vocals. Simple lyricisms matched with teenage tales make for intelligent listening material, pure but very accessible. The added extras of tight basslines from Tomas Lowe aid in the matrimony of guitarist River Reeves with the bottomless chords throughout.

Joining Manchester's latest success story, Blossoms, Viola Beach will be taking to the road throughout the next two months, including a spectacular date on 25th March at Liverpool's O2 Academy courtesy of EVOL whilst also announcing a special homecoming show on 1st October at Warrington's Parr Hall.
