““…(a) kaleidoscope of high octane folk punk via Dexy’s and The Pogues ” Louder Than War
BERRIES are an Alt/Rock trio based in London. They recently released their new EP 'Lies' through Rose Coloured Records, working with producer Dan Lucas at Anchor Baby Studios. Their EP was well received by National Radio and they had plays on Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1 show, Steve Lamacq’s show and Tom Robinson’s show on BBC 6 Music, BBC London Introducing, John Kennedy’s Radio X show (including being booked for one of his live showcases), Amazing Radio, 1Live in Germany and Rodney on The Rock.
They have also been featured in several well known blogs and magazines including Record Collector Mag where they were described as “infectiously energetic, instrumentally taut and melodically uplifting”, Time Out Magazine and Fred Perry Subculture where they selected their new favourite bands. Louder Than War have featured them many times and premiered their animated lyric video for their release ‘Silent’ describing them as “unflinching and uncompromising, their latest single, and its accompanying animated video, are no exception. Two and half minutes of melodic post-punk”.
Recent shows include support for Cherry Glazerr at Electric Brixton, Ex Hex at Village Underground and earlier this year The Mysterines at The Dome along with playing many sold out shows for National Promoters DHP & SOTN.
