After a Valentino fashion endorsement UK band Rubicks releases their next single 'Giddy Up' in May
Cult alternative band Rubicks goes electric after their next single 'Giddy Up' getting snapped up for fashion label Valentino’s next campaign
The song which is already receiving support from NME Radio, XFM and featured in The Best of MySpace podcast with Gill Mills is taken from their 2nd LP which is to come out on Sharp Attack Records and is set for release this summer. Produced by Robert Harder (Brian Eno, Acoustic Ladyland and Whitey), a friend and previous collaborator on their critically acclaimed debut LP ‘In Miniature’, the band are now looking to incorporate a slightly electronic edge to their already new wave-influenced alternative sound.
With this move to a more electronic vibe, the band state that their new LP offers ‘hope in a bleak twisted landscape akin to The Knife, Siouxsie and the Banshees and T-Rex.’
Following their much-admired 2009 ‘Idiot Time’ EP and 2006 album ‘In Miniature’ which marked them out as 9/10 in NME ('too good for the album pages'), they have recently toured throughout America, Canada and Europe playing festivals including SXSW, Canadian Music Week and one in a Lithuanian forest in addition to supporting Gary Numan, White Rose Movement and John Foxx on their tours.
Rubicks, which consists of are Vanessa Anne Redd (vocals/guitar)
