Combining a head-on collision of fuzzed-out euphoric shimmering grunge and 80’s angular post-punk gloom, Whitehaven’s Reptilians have been slowly creating a sound that’s unrelentingly powerful, accessible and unique since their inception in late 2017.
Throughout 2018, the band has impressed gig-goers throughout the county
lwith a series of energetic headline performances and festival appearances.
In addition to a busy gig schedule, Reptilians also released two singles
towards the end of the year – Girls Who Work in Shops and Robson Green.
The former combines the melodic sensibilities of The Cribs with a wistful and sardonic look on love lost-and-found in the vein of Jarvis Cocker.
Following its release, Girls Who Work in Shops received extensive airplay from BBC Introducing and has attracted favourable reviews from the independent music press.
Follow up single Robson Green (Love in the Time of Extreme Angling) is a
live favourite which capitalises on Reptilians’ knack for turning out catchy, immediate tunes that combine a raucous energy with a keen sense of melody.
2019 will see Reptilians release their first official EP. The vinyl-only release is scheduled for the early spring, after which the band will embark on a series of tour dates in support of the record.
