Psych rock quintet The Vryll Society from Liverpool describe their sound as “Space Rock Kraut Sorcery” as they dip into mellow cosmic melodies. Made up of Michael Ellis, Ryan Ellis, Lewis McGuinness, Benjamin Robinson and Lloyd Shearer, the band is ambitious in their sound as well as goals. They released their debut EP Pangea in 2015, which landed them supporting slots alongside Blossoms in 2016 and The Kooks the following year, marking themselves as definite ones to watch.
Their debut EP Course Of The Satellite is due for release on 10th August prior to their headlining UK tour in October. Course Of The Satellite is a majestic leap into space rock, trip hop and psychedelia that spins off into a myriad of different directions of glowing melodies, intimate moods and gloriously uplifting choruses.
Accompanying the album’s announcement was the video for latest psych-driven single ‘Andrei Rublev’, an emotive charge of hip-hop drums, crunching bass lines and hypnotic guitar solos, inspired by scenes from Andre Tarkovsky’s 1996 arthouse classic film. The imagery of the video perfectly mirrors this as the greyscale shots are experimented with and overlapped to create a beautifully timeless and emotive piece.
