VUKOVI have been busy since the release of their debut album in 2017. With festivals under their belt including 2000 Trees and The Pit stage at Reading and Leeds, plus support tours that include PVRIS and ONE OK ROCK, they focussed their energies throughout the end of 2018 on writing and recording their second as-yet-untitled studio album, set for self release in late 2019. Ahead of that they’ve just released their first single of 2019, ‘C.L.A.U.D.I.A’ – along with a new video.
Speaking on the new video, Hamish from the band said: “For C.L.A.U.D.I.A – Janine had this idea of a struggle/escape sequence with someone, so we wanted to figure out a way we could do it where it felt pretty real. So we decided on a one take shoot! Add in the playback in slow motion and we knew we would have a super effective look to really see her struggle. You kinda almost forget by the end that it’s one take, making you wanna go back and watch it again which I fucking love!”
The band have also just announced details of their biggest UK tour to date, including their biggest London headline to date at the Camden Underworld.
During 2018, the band underwent a line-up change, mutually parting ways on good terms with bassist Jason Trotter and drummer Colin Irvine and also secured new management. Having secured PRS Momentum funding in 2018 the band were able to self-fund their forthcoming album, produced by long-term contributor Bruce Rintoul.
The band will be self-releasing their second album later this year – with C.L.A.U.D.I.A standing as the first single.
VUKOVI will be joining Set It Off on tour throughout April before heading out on tour themselves in May/June, tickets available Friday 22nd February.
