This is no mates-from-school cliche. If you want to hear what it sounds like when four distinct personalities from four different cultures coalesce to make some noise – then Neuromantics are your band. Descending on London from Australia, England, Portugal and Latvia respectively, Daniel (vocals/guitar/keyboards), Andrew (guitar/keyboards), Daniel (bass/vocals) and Edgars (drums), cut their teeth in a variety of bands of contrasting styles before being drawn to each other despite, as they have playfully concluded, “the only consistent thing about us is that we’re not consistent”.
In truth, their individual influences and abilities are complementary rather than conflicting, combining to create a powerful alt-rock sound driven by commanding lyrics, melodic guitar riffs and fierce rhythms. Following pulsating live shows at the capital’s pivotal venues for the up-and-coming, Neuromantics recorded an album’s worth of tracks at Puzzle Factory Sound Studios, soon to be released as ‘Crimes of Passion’. Among its tracks is first single ‘Solaris’, a statement of alternative intent if ever there was, and the sound of a band emphatically pushing in the same direction.
