Straightforward in execution and eloquent in delivery, Berries achieve sonic bliss with their solid beat and chugging chord progression of a song in the form of “Wild Vow”. The track takes its roots in the future of indie by delivering a heavy audio blast to the senses with an originality only found in the hungry and an homage to their roots only found in the smart. “Wild Vow” is to-the-point with an injection of energy that will turn any listener into a fan. Well done!
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 choruses 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 has 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 band’s 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.
“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 on 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!”
Following the release of their debut EP Those Funny Things the band was 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 favorite 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 tastemakers and blogs. “Wild Vow” is their anticipated follow-up single.
The band has regularly featured on the Gigslutz girls show called ‘Get In Her Ears’ on Hoxton Radio and have also received great support from It’s All Indie who have mentioned them in in a recent interview giving a shout out to female musicians.

– Record Collector
“The UK is bursting with great indie-rock bands. While many have attempted to emulate the searing sound of Wolf Alice and Black Honey, BERRIES are hammering a sound of their own. Blending ’80s rock, ’90s art-rock, ’00s alt-rock, and the attitude of the riot grrrl movement, the trio are quickly carving out a spot in the competitive London music scene”
– The Revue
