CHROM

 

CHROM were formed in May 2007 by Christian Marquis and Thomas Winters, after both discovered their mutual love for solid, club-compatible yet melodic Electro sounds. The group’s name is a combination of the two musician’s first names (CHRis and tOM.) CHROM stands for an effective synthesis of Synth Pop, EBM and Club-Electro, i.e.: massive beats and powerful bass with a harder edge, garnished with ultra-catchy melodies. The debut album “Electroscope” was released in 2010 to a lot of critical acclaim. The band has since toured repeatedly and highly successfully as support for the Berlin-based legend Blutengel and played many major festivals. In March 2012, CHROM released their second outing “Synthetic
Movement” on Out Of Line Music, which further elaborates on the group’s trademark fusion of Club and electronic Pop music. Album number 3, “Peak & Decay, followed in 2016 and had the duo releasing their most mature and versatile work to date. Tours and big festival shows followed and the band is now working on a follow-up. Life is dancing to an electronic beat… and CHROM’s urban club-Pop is the soundtrack!

Last July

Last July are a UK based Dark Romantic band with a sound derived from a wide breadth of influences including Goth, New Romantic and Rock. Their songs tell stories of emotion and sorrow; though far from morbid their music remains upbeat with an optimistic edge. Passionate about performing live, they blend dark atmospheres with driving guitars and strong melodic vocals.

Initially formed as a two-piece, Last July quickly gathered a following after playing to a packed audience at the Resolution Hotel during Whitby Goth Weekend in 2009. Releasing their debut EP the following year, they received welcoming reviews and gained airplay on internet radio. In 2011 Last July embarked on a new chapter with the addition of guitarist Nevla (ex-Rome Burns/All living Fear) to further expand their sound. After a string of successful gigs and festival appearances the band turned their attention to recording their first full-length album, ‘A True Story of a Lie’ was released the following year to critical acclaim. Now frequenting bigger stages the band saw fit to recruit a bass player, welcoming Nevla’s old band mate H (ex-Rome Burns) into the fold. 2013 was a busy year, with a second album written, a European distribution deal signed, and the release of a new remix album ‘Perceptions’ featuring re-works by Pretentious, Moi?, Cryogenica, DeathBoy and more. Alas this year also saw Nevla leaving to concentrate on parenthood, but new blood was found in the form of Sam (ex-Voices of Masada/Felinedown) bringing new a new dynamic to the lineup. Back on the road, 2014 saw Last July busy performing a string of gigs across the UK and also winess their first foray into Europe to play at the Dark Diamonds Festival in Austria.

After a brief hiatus in 2014-15, Last July are back and gigging ferociously with a new line-up and a new found enthusiasm.
