RALE Short Info

RALE are the new post-punk revivalists, picking up the baton and running it to places not visited for almost three decades. The Sheffield three piece are already a BBC Introducing favourite. Their debut single, 'Sprinkle With Rust', has been played by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio and Radio X.

Tom O'Hara (vocals) and Dino Sofos (guitar) had been in a band together drawing inspiration from their love for The Chameleons, Comsat Angels, The Teardrop Explodes and Echo & The Bunnymen, while Sena Verdi (Guitar/Keys/Synth) was an established electronic music producer, who had collaborated with acts like Aqualung, BT, and Paul Oakenfold.

The three met, practiced, gigged, demoed and two years later, retreated to a friend's recording studio in a disused warehouse in Sheffield to record a collection of infectiously catchy and powerful pop songs. The band teamed up with Sheffield's legendary analogue synth doctor, Dean Honer (the brains behind such influential electronic music projects as I Monster, All Seeing I and more recently, The Moonlandingz) and emerged with a huge sound that is instantly recognisable as RALE.

Whilst nodding to the Steel City's electronic pioneers of the past, the band unify Rock, New Wave Pop and a sense of modern-day unease. They set farcical, melodramatic lyrics to a soundtrack of stadium drum beats, fierce guitar hooks and potent vocal melodies. RALE aren't ones to wallow over such mundane matters as why your significant other left you... again.

After winning over audiences with their infectious songs and Tom’s absurdly brilliant dancing, RALE are on a mission to become one of Britain's most important bands.
