REVERE is a seven-piece band based in London, with members originating from all over the UK – from London through to Liverpool, from Newcastle to Edinburgh and as far afield as the Orkney Isles.
The band includes violin, cello, keys and trumpet along with the traditional guitars, bass and drums. The diverse line-up brings a variety of influences, including the cinematic scores of Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone; the soaring vocals and genre-tripping of Jeff Buckley; and the dark folk of Nick Cave.
REVERE combine these influences with elements of gypsy songs, post-rock, klezmer, film scores and gospel to produce cohesive, multi-layered and dramatic music which moves from tiny, musicbox openings to cacophonous walls of sound. The result is a sound often compared to instrumental alchemists like Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire and Beirut.
A REVERE live show is as likely to be a full-scale electric onslaught as an intimate acoustic show.
"Revere […] combine the fiery melodrama of Muse with the rousing chamber-pop of Arcade Fire. They could, and should, be huge" STEPHEN DALTON, THE TIMES
