Come to Hull, City of Culture, where Vulgarians combine Black Grape with Black Flag

"Meet 'Steve Dream'. A perverted '70s hypnotherapist."

The spotlight is on Hull this year, which hopefully means a few people will pick up on the local music scene there and bands like Vulgarians.

The four-piece have just shared this new video for their track ‘Hands Around The Waste’, directed by Aidan Razzall from Weirds.

Following up their debut release ‘Life’s Successful Death’ last summer, the track is going to appear on a new EP, ‘Almost-Instinct, Almost True’, produced by MJ from Hookworms, out on 5 May.

It’s creepy.

Connor Cheesman from the band has this to say about it all: “With Hands Around The Waste, we always felt it had a real jazzy, disco feel in parts, which really is a totally foreign world for us. I mean, it still has that heavy punch to it, but it was sonically something we certainly hadn’t touched on before. We wanted the video to reciprocate that feel. So, we present to you… ‘Steve Dream’. A perverted ’70s hypnotherapist.”

Having just been on tour with The Wytches, Vulgarians also have announced a hometown show at Hull’s Polar Bear venue on 26 May. It’ll finish off their recently announced UK headline tour. Here are the upcoming dates.
