Following the exciting announcement in November that BERRIES have signed to Xtra Mile Recordings, the trio are now gearing up for their first release through the label on Jan 22nd 2021, with their hard hitting single ‘Copy’. The band describe the single as being “about imitation and how we are programmed by society to try and live up to other people’s expectations of happiness and how unhealthy, self-critical and obsessive this way of existing can be”. Four minutes of snaking guitar licks, frenetic percussion and an ever-present undercurrent of fuzz-heavy melody, it’s quintessential BERRIES, while feeling like the band taking the next confident steps forward in their career.
A three piece with a penchant for effortlessly combining off kilter melodies with guttural grunge, London trio BERRIES have been turning heads up and down the country for a number of years; their vast array of singles earning the band crucial support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq and John Kennedy, as well as online championing from Louder Than War and Fred Perry. It’s not just offstage that the band have impressed, however. Working regularly with national promoters DHP, recent notable shows include Cherry Glazerr and Porridge Radio at Electric Brixton, Ex Hex at Village Underground and supporting Frank Turner at a socially distanced acoustic show in Nottingham.
