"Live Review - King Tut's 3/1/2011"

"their songs were a treat, offering sharp alternative rock that delivered waves of noise delightfully, and uncoiled in a bruising, jagged manner." - Jonathan Geddes, Herald Scotland


"Radar Prize"

"...the first glimpse of yet another fine Scottish band." - The Scotsman, Under The Radar


"Sunday Herald Feature"

"Glasgow four-piece Verse Metrics only played their first gig in July, but have already released a five-track EP titled VM1 that showcases their versatility within their chosen rock sphere. Lead Track, Tired Lights, you could say, is Twilight Sad meets Mogwai, although it's a bit more sophisticated than that, a bit more melodic within the repeated phrases and a good bit more fluid with the guitar lines - post-math-rock, maybe? Scottish Rock is in a healthy state at the moment - Biffy Clyro have opened that door wide - so here's hoping that Tired Lights is the cover of choice for next year's X Factor Champion." - Alan Morrison, Arts Editor - Sunday Herald

Bio

Verse Metrics are a four-piece alternative band based in Glasgow, Scotland. Formed in August 2009, the band spent time developing their sound before playing their debut gig in July 2010.

The band spent Summer and Autumn 2010 recording in Dundee with Robin Sutherland (Stapleton, Copy Haho, Laeto, Pensioner and Juliet Kilo), and the 5 songs chosen were mastered at Abbey Road. Debut EP 'VM1' was released digitally on 22nd of November 2010 to coincide with a 7-date tour of Scotland, seeing the band travel to Thurso, Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling and Edinburgh, before finishing the tour with a hometown show.

After playing the opening night of King Tut's Wah Wah Hut's 'New Year Revolution' festival to a full house and being among Vic Galloway's tips for 2011, Verse Metrics are looking forward to a prosperous year. This will include a split single with Little Yellow Ukuleles supported by a Scottish tour and a short UK tour in April.
