Brighton quartet Fond of Rudy release new single ‘Lucky’, who command their own brand of indie pop.

Following up on ‘Singapore’, the synth-infused track, Fond of Rudy developed their music from a heartfelt core of washed with stylistic references from 80s icons and revived to a state of modernity through contemporary production.

The band has played a show with Abbie Ozard and aired on BBC Radio Kent last week their sweet pop package is spreading like wildfire

Fond of Rudy are a sweet pop package of driving rhythms and memorable hooks. The music attempts to encapsulate a feeling, an emotion, or a state of mind rather than simply a mindful melody.

Speaking of the new track, Fond of Rudy stated: “One of our main objectives when writing is to encourage listeners to draw their own meanings to the lyrics, leading them to connect with the music from their own life experiences.

“‘Lucky’ is inspired by the phrase “it’s never too late”. Firmly believe that if you put your mind to it, it’s possible to make an alteration.”

Taking their cues from household known acts like Twenty-One Pilots and Two Door Cinema Club, incorporating elements of synth, indie and alternative- reminiscent of Fickle Friends and The 1975, Fond of Rudy’s sound is packed with poise and purpose.

Being featured on a number of international Hype Machine certified blogs and curated Spotify playlists helped the band secure slots at The Great Escape, Blissfields, Brownstock and Leefest.
