Liverpool is the claimed and famed home of many musical favorites; Echo and the Bunnymen, The Wombats, and of course The Beatles. But there is a rising star amidst the legacies, Venus Demilo. The four-piece’s first single “Sinking Ships” that came out nearly a year ago, in January 2015 made some waves in the media with coverage from Bay TV, Amazing Radio, and BBC Introducing. Venus Demilo’s latest single, “Sophia” due to release on the 11th of December 2015, has already had its radio debut a few days ago on BBC Introducing Merseyside. “Sophia” builds like Atlas Genius, Bombay Bicycle Club, or The 1975, and crashes with a chorus reminiscent of Foals’ angsty heaviness. A run of singles is currently in the making, be on the lookout for new releases as Venus Demilo is a band worth keeping your eye on.
