London quartet Revolvers play an energetic and pulsating range of entirely original material.

Their guitar driven rock from the 60s and 70s fuses the band’s passion for modern guitar pop. New single ‘True Love’ is a bittersweet love song with an outro full of hope.

James Thurling, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, said: “We all grew up listening to our parents’ music, Bowie, Stones, Zeppelin, The Beatles. My home as a young boy was full of vinyl records and music playing all the time.

“But we also love guitar driven pop and rock from the late 90s to today. Our music fuses these two generations of music together. You can hear elements of The Strokes, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and Catfish melding together with some bluesy 70s guitar riffs.”

Since forming in 2016, Revolvers began carving out a small but growing following playing gigs in and around London.

Since forming in 2016, Revolvers began carving out a small but growing following playing gigs in and around London. With the emergence of other classic rock inspired groups such as America’s Greta Van Fleet and Australia’s Sticky Fingers, it’s quite clear that the decline of guitar driven music is nothing more than a rumour.

Revolvers released a debut EP comprising five songs in January 2018 to extremely positive reviews from leading music industry bloggers and media.

“To be honest, we recorded our debut EP “Your Indie Heroes Will Betray You” on a shoestring budget in the recording studios of the University of West London,” said Thurling. “We weren’t really expecting anything so it was really satisfying to get so much positive buzz from that first up effort”.

The “Indie Heroes” EP presents a more indie pop/rock sound than the band’s recent work which leans towards a heavier rock sound while still retaining the infectious melodies and lyrics of the debut.

The result of the band’s work in the studio are four new songs to be released during 2019. Each song is quite different from the other but retains Revolvers laser like commentary on matters of youth culture, politics and art. The heavier groove coupled with often soaring and anthemic choruses creates an entirely original yet accessible sound. ‘Ture Love’ is that first single.
