Volkova Sisters release New EP ‘Hope’ 28th May

New EP ‘Hope’
Released 28th May

“…fantastically inventive music” – The Line Of Best Fit

‘‘…shortlisted for EP of the year” – The Muse in Music

Volkova Sisters, emerge from the Hungarian underground DIY music scene, to tell their folktronic tales. Adopting their moniker from the main characters in ‘Pattern Recognition’, written by – Father of the cyberpunk science fiction genre – William Gibson. Volkova Sisters; formed in 2009 by songwriting duo Daniel Sandor (synth) and Dalma Berger (vocals), first bonded after establishing a shared love of dark, melancholic 80’s new-wave music. Their intentions were to create music reminiscent of the shimmering distortions of My Bloody Valentine combined with dreamy landscapes of the Cocteau Twins. European cold-wave, with a sharper emphasis on industrial pop. Final member Gergely Kovacs (guitar) joined shortly after the bands conception, in late 2009. The new EP, HOPE was written at a time when Hungary was making headlines all over the world for the wrong reasons. Overcoming the challanges by creating something new was the source of hope. 2011 was a busy and important year: they had a three week tour in the US in march, including performances at SXSW, Whiskey A Go Go and illegal warehouse parties in Los Angeles, a debut EP Launch in one of East London’s best clubs TheDrop, they supported Lamb on their Budapest gig and played some great festivals in the Eastern block.

May 2012 will see them releasing their new EP, HOPE along with some of their emblematic style videos. Lead single ‘Shiny Fay Of Sorrow’ Shiny Fay Of Sorrow is about stepping out from a wrong relationship. The couple in the song have long known that they’d been only imitating the longing, and it was only their ego that refused to let it go. Our hero steps out of this and chooses the uncertainty. They’ll be playing on some of the major festivals around Europe, e.g. EXIT Festival and on more niche, experimental ones e.g. Black Noise.
