DUSKIf the very last solar ray vanishes from these sere and harsh grounds humanity is used to occupy the wan four are ready to hit the road releasing darkness and spreading heaviness over the land. Invoked by primeval vitrue their unresting specters keep hunting down those wandering vessels which plead to get filled with screaming riffage, hammering drumbeats and gnarling basslines.

Soup, Sweet and Sour, the debut single of the band, was released on January 26, 2018 on Electric Fire Records.
VULVARINEVulvarock is a unique term to describe the band’s sound. The sisters bring raw punk sounds to the table, while Suzy and Robin add hard rock and heavy metal influenced melodies and harmonies. Sandy on lead guitar binds these two worlds together with her high-energy rock ‘n’ roll style. Vulvarine’s songs are energetic, dramatic, but most of all: empowering. They deal with discovering your own personality, and the heights and pitfalls along that journey.

LUKE LAMBHEARTAustrian singer-songwriter Luke Lambheart is an American
at heart. In the tradition of the eccentric 1960s
folk singer, with a guitar in his lap and a chip on
his shoulder, he makes music heavily drenched in all
things American: rock’n’roll, the blues, bubblegum
pop, as well as a stubborn insistence on his right
to feel sorry for himself. Since his fi rst single ”Two By Two“ has gotten quite
a bit of radio airplay in 2015, he has now released
his self-titled debut EP.
