The Vryll Society are one of Britain's best up and coming Psych-Rock bands. Hailing from Liverpool, their desire to create complex, stimulating liquid jams and funk is unrivalled in the current British Indie scene. We caught up with frontman Michael Ellis at The Bodega Social Club, Nottingham, during the bands recent UK tour with Hidden Charms, to discuss their new single A Perfect Rhythm and much more...
"A Perfect Rhythm is just like an instant hit"
- Michael Ellis
A Perfect Rhythm is the perfect continuation to The Vryll Society's Pangea EP. It's still a psychedelic treat which maintains a serious amount of funk and sway. But best of all, as Ellis states in our interview, there's less sprawling. Here the music is straight to the point, and with extra focus being placed upon the bass and guitar melody, it now feels like The Vryll Society have found their style; a happy medium between Indie Rock and Psych guitar music.
The real magic happens when watching The Vryll Society live. We were lucky enough to watch the Liverpool five take to the stage during their recent UK tour with a performance which was truly Rock and Roll. They are no pretenders on stage. They steal no style from elsewhere. The band lose themselves in a truly psychedelic Rock and Roll set, and Ellis holds the front with a grace and finesse. They almost approach the stage like a job, and deliver what is truly a magical hour of music for the crowd.
