“Futurist R&B laced with Rock”
April Blue's songs of life, lust and loneliness spring from a bed of brooding electronic soundscapes. Frontman Ozz LP's soulful vocals drive the music through scenes of lullaby and desperation, guided by the sultry grooves of the band, who masterfully walk the line between laid back sleaze and gritty Rock. Their original sound has earned them recognition as 'Best Pop Artist' at the NMG awards, 'Slickest Sound' at the NVMAs and backing from BBC Introducing, where their third single ''Valentine' featured as track of the week.
Debut album Pop Girls Etc is “fresh, vibrant and exciting” says David Durant of Brooklands Radio, whilst Edward Adoo of BBC Three Counties described April Blue as “amazing”. Their live show is both energetic and moving in equal measure. Songs weave together to create an immersive musical experience that is at once entertaining and emotionally engaging, as their dynamic sound and musical dexterity finds its foundation in heartfelt and sincere songwriting.
Using many electronic elements that are traditionally part of the production process, APRIL BLUE manipulate these sounds in a live setting for one of the most exciting new sounds which has already got a lot of people talking.
The band are as independent as they come; writing, producing and mixing their own music, directing their own videos in house. They have played across the UK and into Europe and are set to take the rest of the world by storm in the very near future.
The four piece take their inspiration from an array of artists such as The 1975, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Drake and Michael Jackson to name just a few. Drawing on their varied musical backgrounds, they fuse urban genres with straight undiluted rock concentrate and create a sound all their own. April Blue's sonic exploration knows no bounds.
APRIL BLUE is a Rock band with an R&B heart. Let yourself be seduced.
