URF release new single, festival date

Manchester-based psychadelic five-piece URF's new single "Solitude" is out now, and the band will be performing at the Manchester Psych Fest in August.

The band has described "Solitude", which follows on from the band's debut EP For The Ride, as "an expression of the uncertainty of contemporary life and the often-cynical thoughts that occur within it."

URF have a variety of influences, including Suede, Joni Mitchell, Kurt Vile and The Cure, who inform their psychadelic pop and shoegaze sound.

"Solitude" is available now on all major platforms, or you can listen to it on YouTube here. URF will also be playing at the Manchester Psych Fest on August 30 and tickets are available here.
