Ring Ring Rouge are an alternative/indie band from Burnley, Lancashire signed to Jack to Phono Records. Described as “a band with an obvious and unique talent” by WohoMusic, the four piece have impressed audiences across the North West and West Yorkshire with their intensely atmospheric sound and instrument swapping live performances. Formed in the late summer of 2010, Ring Ring Rouge set about crafting a distinct and intimate sound inspired by bands like The National, Radiohead, Interpol and Modest Mouse and swiftly recorded an enthusiastically well received debut EP.
The band’s early shows included runs to the finals of two North West ‘battle of the bands’ competitions and prestigious slots on the Hebden Bridge Trades Club’s Christmas Unsigned and the Prestwich Shangri-La arts festival, with their effortlessly melodic guitars, punctuated rhythms and soaring vocals catching attention.
In the Spring/Summer 2011, Ring Ring Rouge took a break from playing live to expand on their progressively developing sound and returned to venues across East Lancashire in the Autumn with a stirring new set that caught the attention of London based independent record label Jack to Phono.
These are exciting times for the band with plans for a single, an album and shows across the UK. Stay tuned…
