Sheffield three-piece RALE, are set to release their debut single on the 9th of December, 2016. SEEN loves the video.

‘Sprinkle With Rust’ was recorded in Sheffield with Dean Honer (I Monster, All Seeing Eye, The E.R.C., Moonlandingz) and has already proven to be a BBC Introducing favourite. The single was directed and produced by Jon Lawton and Mickey Voak from StinkStudios.

RALE were formed just over two years ago when Tom O’Hara (vocals) and Dino Sofos (guitar) met Sena Verdi (synths / guitar). Tom and Dino had played in a Post-Punk band and were influenced by the likes of Comsat Angels, The Chameleons, Teardrop Explodes and Echo & The Bunnymen, while Sena was an established electronic music producer, writer and vocalist who had worked with acts like BT, Paul Oakenfold and Aqualung.

Together they set about developing a new sound between them, straddling influences from far and wide and encompassing hints of The Smashing Pumpkins, Massive Attack and New Order, to Depeche Mode, The Human League and The The. Live shows soon followed and they entered and won a Spotify competition, which saw them land support slots with The Cribs and Mystery Jets, whilst picking up favourable reviews in NME and Clash magazine along the way.

Local BBC Introducing presenter Christian Carlisle was the first to pick up on the band and declared live on air: “They’ve come out with some incredible music. I absolutely love them. Big Music.”

Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to an EP and album with Richy Westley from Moonlandingz (ex Reverend And The Makers) on drums, RALE will record a BBC Introducing session for BBC Sheffield and then support Living Body at Picture House Social in the city on the 8th of December.
