Introducing: Desmerelda

Drifting somewhere between Queens of the Stone Age and White Stripes, Desmerelda pull together influence from iconic rock bands, injected with their own grooving energy, to make for a sound that is pretty damn good.

With their latest single ‘This Time’ Desmerelda present us with a surge of power – raw energy and fuzz. Following their last single, ‘Lady Sees the Lies’ which saw recognition from Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq, Desmerelda gave themselves a tough act to follow, but ‘This Time’ proves that they’re capable, and suggests they’ve got even more to give. Keep an eye on Desmerelda.

Desmerelda play Ripple Red Presents: Ride The Wind at The Amersham Arms on 23 August
