Rouge are an all girl four piece from London, and winners of the Rock the House 2014
competition, run by the Houses of Parliament. Touted as ones to watch by Q Magazine, they
launched with an explosive hometown show in April 2013, and have showcased their fuzzy
blues rock style to audiences nationwide, most recently becoming one of the only bands to
have ever played a set inside the House of Commons. Having been compared to the likes of
Deap Vally, Haim, and The White Stripes, as well as being featured on ITV and BBC News,
the band picked up support from around the world following the release of debut single
'Wilderness' in November 2013. The DIY release, accompanied by a headline UK tour, was
met with rave reviews, leading the initial run of handmade physical CDs to sell out within a
month, and high profile support slots followed in early 2014 with the likes of The Subways
and To Kill a King.
Amongst all of this, and in between playing packed out shows at The Borderline, The Garage, and
Barfly in London, the girls found the time to lock themselves in the studio, taking their time to
prepare and perfect their first official EP, with Adam Crowe of Snap Studios. The highly
accomplished EP was released to the world in June to rave reviews, and has received national plays
on Absolute Radio. Led by title track 'Edge of the Bed', and accompanied by a stunning new music
video, shot in one day in a West London warehouse, the EP showcases both sides of the band, with
the raw power and stomping blues of Edge of the Bed and Wilderness being complimented by the
slower, soulful vocals of Strike and Limit to Your Love.
The EP is out now, available in physical format from the official website, and to download and
stream via all the usual outlets. Keep your eyes peeled as the Rouge girls step it up a notch.
Bursting forward in leaps and bounds musically, the Edge of the Bed release will see the band cover
yet more of the country, responding to the demands of their ever growing fan base, and continuing
2014 with the sort of momentum that can only lead them onto a very bright future.
