Tell us a bit about yourself?

We are a boisterous four-piece born and bred in Bristol. Inspired by the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Black Keys and Jack White, we are naturally drawn to dirty, raw Rock N Roll.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?

Full of attitude and a reckless love for what they do, Bordello create an electric performance everywhere they go; on or off stage. Our music brings back everything that was loved about 60's and 70's rock into the 21st Century.

What’s your back-story?

The band was born from a drunken night out, and it has remained much the same; a concoction of raw, boozy swagger. We think our music relates to everyone to a certain degree, the attitude and feeling goes to those of an older generation who yearn for music of times passed; and our lyrics represent our generation, one that we feel needs introducing to real music with a message.

What are you working on at the moment?

We are currently in the studio writing. This year we aim to release four new singles accompanied with videos. We are also in the process of creating a live studio performance.
