Verse Metrics are a groove-driven 4 piece band with a knack for writing twisty, turny alternative rock songs.
The band employ post-rock instrumentation with nontraditional song structures; and math-rock subtleties as a bed for Bob Dick's introspective, melancholic and often cryptic lyrics. These are sung with a distinctive Scottish accent in an authoritative baritone or hushed whisper to provide a signature atmosphere.
Verse Metrics released their third EP 'We'll Be Listening and Remembering Until We're Old and Unsteady' on Lonely Voyage Records on 2nd December 2016.
Past releases include two 5-track Eps – ‘VM1’ (2010) and ‘Radians’ (2012) – and the double-A-side ‘Sleep & Wakefulness’ (2011), leading to favourable reviews from well known media platforms such as The Herald, The Scotsman, The List, Artrocker, PROG Magazine and many more.
Live highlights include sold out shows at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut (Summer Nights/New Years Revolution), a main stage appearance at Brew at The Bog festival and several supports including The Appleseed Cast, TTNG, Jakob, Delta Sleep, Enemies and Axes.
