VLURE have long infused EDM sensibilities into their viciously urgent tracks, unsure whether to hole up in the deepest pocket of Tresor or leave the local pub regulars’ jaws on the floor. Debut EP ‘Euphoria’ paints a group that are wholly aware of their forward momentum, and utilise it to create a throbbing soundscape that takes you on a tour through the stripped underbelly of club music. The electro-symphonic soundscape lays down a thunderous foundation for vocalist Hamish Hutcheson to spit his visceral woes. ‘Heartbeat’ showcases his discerning vocal power while ‘I Won’t Run (From Love)’ turns the cheek and accesses a more intimate colour of his delivery, supplemented by keyboardist Alex Pearson’s forlorn vocal runs. This floor-filling debut seamlessly blends subterranean dance textures, crunching guitar, soaring synth leads and pulsating intensity. A calling card for a band that no room can hold.
