The band’s music is an attempt “to straddle the line between the experimental and the accessible.” And on the group’s latest track The Skin, the Villains strike that balance with aplomb."

ABOUT

SOME VILLAINS are an alternative rock band based in Somerset, England. The music is a cacophony of hard drums, angular riffs, unusual rhythms and chord inversions; all attempting to straddle the line between the experimental and the accessible.

The band played their highest profile show yet, supporting Liam Gallagher at Pilton Party 2018. They emerged victorious over 30 other bands during the audition stages and impressed a judging panel that included Glastonbury Festival organisers and founder Michael Eavis. 2019 sees the band on the bill at The Godney Gathering.

Two SV EPs exist to date - 2016's Lizard Teeth and 2018's Outliers. Both releases showcase the band's rapier-like double guitar attack that has become a signature of their music.

04 MARCH 18 - TRANSISTOR blog review of THE SKIN

"The band’s villainy is small cog in some nefarious machine hell-bent on churning out dismay and dread; they’re only a blip on the radar, the lesser of many, many evils. They’re just some villains, nothing more."
