London-based alt rock band The Lilac Hour‘s latest single is ‘People on TV’, available via Bread & Butter Records.
‘People on TV’ delves into the universal longing for recognition and success, shedding light on the potential challenges that accompany fame and fortune (or so we envision). With its unique blend of uplifting and melancholic vibes, in time for summer.
Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Jake McCollum, bassist James Katz and drummer Matt Volpato are said to produce energetic riffs and intricate melodies that pay homage to artists as diverse as Muse, Nothing But Thieves, Royal Blood and Sam Fender.
The Lilac Hour formed at university where they discovered that the melodic supremacy of ABBA and Fleetwood Mac kept creeping into their grungy riffs.
The band’s early demo tracks racked-up several thousand streams on Spotify and the trio are delighted to have teamed up with Bread and Butter records to produce their upcoming EP, that will be coming out in 2023.
The band’s debut single ‘Call Me‘ was described as a powerful rock ballad that paints a picture of nostalgia and melancholy that fully immerses the listener.
