Sizzling, Sure Fire Indie Summer Hit


The Ultra Violets

Forming a new band during lock down was a brave move in itself, releasing a debut single as the road to freedom is within our grasp dictated a kick ass, sit up and listen release and that is precisely what The Ultra Violets have delivered in Romance. The band are indie to the core and hit the ground running with Romance - a big, beefy wall of sound that instantly punches you between the ears and makes your heart soar.

Romance is full on jingly jangly guitars, pounding drums, strong bass lines, rich keys and glorious harmonies supporting lead vocalist Perran Nicholls who sounds more like Liam Gallagher than Liam Gallagher. Sitting alongside the sumptuous feast of music is a surprisingly romantic story celebrating the love between two people; hence the Romance of the title. Enforced downtime has allowed songwriter Perran the space to focus on creating new songs without the demands of a day time job alongside rehearsals and relentless gigs. The Ultra Violets will reap the rewards of this breathing space; Romance is on a different level to anything Perran has previously written and sets UVS firmly on course to join the growing list of in demand local musicians taking Cornish rock across the rest of the UK.

Recording Romance at Cornwall’s Cube Studios and handing the mix to Reverend and the Maker’s Producer Dave Sanderson has given The Ultra Violets an impressive launch pad to unleash a sizzling, sure fire Indie summer hit and now the pressure is on for the notoriously difficult follow up.

The Ultra Violets are confirmed for Cornwall’s PandaFest on 10th July and just announced a slot at Boardmasters in August 2021 where you will find them on the magnificent The View stage.

Romance is released on These Bloody Thieves Records, and is available for download now from all the usual places. Find out more by following the band –
