Melbourne’s RVG have a new song ‘Alexandra’ ahead of their North American tour.

‘Alexandra’ is the first new music from RVG since the 2017 debut ‘A Quality of Mercy’.

The song was recorded at Head Gap studios with Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Beth Orton). The video for ‘Alexandra’ was directed by Triana Hernandez.

“Alexandra” is available on limited edition 7-inch vinyl, with only 200 copies available, and features a previously unheard B-Side, a cover of John Cale’s “Dying on the Vine”.

Australian fans have one last chance to see RVG before they head to the USA. They’ll play Howler in Melbourne in 24 May 2019.

Hailing from the northern suburbs of Melbourne, RVG — more formally, but less frequently, the Romy Vager Group — self released their sensational debut full-length, A Quality Of Mercy, earlier this year. The LP is an eight-track collection of tight, incisive post-punk/retro-pop infused with a liberal dose of downcast catharsis, confessional lyrics and downright infectious hooks.

The four-piece band is centred on singer-songwriter and namesake Romy Vager, who self-describes her influences as including the likes of the Psychedelic Furs, UK post-punk/neo-psych quartet Soft Boys and Queensland indie icons the Go-Betweens. Featuring members from The Galaxy Folk, Drug Sweat, Hearing, Gregor and Rayon Moon, the individual musicians are no strangers to the Melbourne scene, and they utilise their experience and talents to sublime effect both on their recorded music and in their incredible live shows, with their individual contributions, including the guitar work of Reuben Bloxham, the bass action of Angus Bell and mad drumming skills of Marc Nolte.
