TUNE Hello Operator - Vex Money
Hello Operator - 'Vex Money'
Single Focus Date: Friday 16th December 2016.
Hello Operator present new single ‘Vex Money’, set to be released on Rolla Records.
Vex Money is the single release from the bands upcoming debut 4-track EP ‘Love is a loan’.
“We were recording in Watford for a few days and stopped in this Travelodge nearby. On a night we’d knock about at the bar downstairs and there’d always be this guy chatting up a different girl. Think he thought of himself as a bit of a ladies man like. We couldn’t help but notice as he’d buy them all these extravagant drinks and tell a load of mad stories. I suppose we felt a bit sorry for him really, he just seemed like a hopeless romantic that was burning a hole in his own pocket.”
"Sometimes you just want a band to grab you, and shout: here we are! To hell with subtlety, with nuance - sometimes you just want a bloody great big riff, pounding drums, and an anthemic chorus. Hello Operator clearly agree’ – Clash.
Their last single ‘Operator Hour’, gained strong radio success with plays on Radio 1 (BBC Introducing, Annie Mac) Radio X (John Kennedy X-Posure show, X-Posure playlist) and a Radio X Live Session set to air next month as well as support on BBC Introducing York (Jericho Keys).
Building from this success, the band have taken what has been described as a ‘rock inferno’ up and down the country. Performing at Leeds festival, Isle Of White, Ynot and Tramlines festival.
We’d be amiss not to mention the sync on BBC TV’s ‘Football Focus’ where the bands track was paired with none other than WWE star Bautista for his weekend football (or soccer!) predictions. A true mix of power, passion and energy!
Produced by Thomas Mitchener who the band have previously worked with on first single ‘Stephanie’, Hello Operator release Vex Money on the 21st October to be followed by the band’s debut EP ‘Love Is A Loan’ on the 4th November. This is in line with the band’s first London headline show at Sebright arms on the 3rd November.
