Public Address nights at the West End Centre are back and we have a cracking line-up for you...
VLMV (pronounced ALMA) is a self-proclaimed ambient-ish post-something singer-songwriter, composer and producer from London.
Known as ALMA until 2018’s literal name flip, necessitated by regular cases of mistaken identity with the Finnish Pop namesake, VLMV take their name from the Atacama Large Millimeter / submillimeter Array – “a really bloody powerful telescope”.
Formed in early 2015 and fronted by songwriter/producer Pete Lambrou, VLMV released their debut mini album via Fierce Panda Records in August 2015, receiving critical acclaim and described by Lauren Laverne (BBC6 Music) as “a beam of light through a dark, cold night”.
VLMV and blend post-rock, shoegaze, ambient, and contemporary classical music. They have recently released their third album ‘Sing With Abandon’. The follow up to the acclaimed ‘Stranded, Not Lost’, this new album is the result of years of collaboration, experimentation and crafting the music and sounds that make up VLMV.

The tracks are set apart by driving, distinctive vocals with comparisons made to early U2, Foals, and The Killers.
