BandRockPop

“Supercharged Experimental/Indie/New Wave/Rock band from Ayrshire!!
We all bring our individual styles to the table and try not to think about what’s “cool” and what other people want to hear. If we like it we’ll play it whether it’s a risk or not. No foreplay, straight to the point tunes!

Biography

"Their songs are bundling balls of energy, swathed in assured songwriting and deep "production that belies their age – just six months together as a band. And, sure to aid them to no end, there’s so much melody filling up their tracks that they bulge like Augustus Gloop’s waistband."
Chris Cope The Scotmans On the Radar

"Such a special band. Incredibly these rockers only got together six months ago but are already one of Scotlands hottest young acts, Janine could become Scotlands greatest female rock singer since Shirley Manson"
Jim Gellately The Sun

"Go see them live. They are a really tight, powerful, emotive live band."
Vic Galloway BBC Scotland

"They're a four piece kicking out some powerful riffs and some equally heart felt lyrics. They are a phenominal band live"
Ally McCrae Radio 1 BBC Introducing

“Scottish rockers Vukovi have come racing out of the blocks since getting together in September 2010. ‘Get Hot And Feel The Butterflies’ is a particular favourite, a tight-as-hell rock stomp, with all the energy and melody of a band who sound like they’ve been around a whole lot longer.”
Charlie Ashcroft Amazing Radio

“This is their first ever demo they’ve had recorded and I’m quite excited by it.” Yvonne Mclennan Island A&R

"Their songs are bundling balls of energy, swathed in assured songwriting and deep "production that belies their age – just six months together as a band. And, sure to aid them to no end, there’s so much melody filling up their tracks that they bulge like Augustus Gloop’s waistband."
