We're No Heroes
South Wales math-pop three piece We're No Heroes released their new EP 'Quiet Colours' on June 15th 2011, in association with At Your Own Risk Events. Their well received EP launch at Gwdihw bar in Cardiff attracted a packed out crowd, as they performed alongside other hotly tipped local acts Oui Messy & Vvolves. Since the EP's release they've racked up column inches in local newspaper The Western Mail, their music writer David Owens calling WNH's sound “a particular funky take on angular 80's indie and zeitgeist-snaring math rock'' while also praising them for their enthusiasm, productivity and hugely energetic live shows. They've gained airplay on Bethan Elfyn's BBC Radio Wales show and were also picked by her as a act to listen out for on Tom Robinson's BBC 6 Music show. The EP track 'Empty Beat' has just been playlisted by Topman Radio in stores accross the country! They also popped into the GTFM studios for a discuss their new EP release. Meanwhile, respected online blog titles like Room Thirteen, The Whiteboard Project have written positive words and a feature in Gold Flake Paint detailed WNH's own heroes!

We're No Heroes- Empty Beat by Soundandvisionpr

Perfecting songs written over a six-month period through live performances and rigorous jam sessions, WNH’s hit Ripefruit Recordings studio in Cardiff with respected producer Jordan Andrews. The band set about condensing and refining their sound still further, whittling their initial eight demo tracks down to the four strongest songs in the set, piecing them together the finished results sounded more fluid, hanging together as a record, and the best thing the fledgling group have released thus far. 'Quiet Colours’ EP features four tracks 'Atlantic Hearts', 'Empty Beat', 'Tigers' and 'Latitude' and was released digitally worldwide on the 15th of June, whilst simultaneously getting a limited physical release in the UK.

We're No Heroes note that 'each of their songs has its own personality and story, coming together to create one whole.' Some have pointed out that the title of their new EP 'Quiet Colours' is a reflection of the personality of each band member, their meek and geeky image offstage contrasted by their addictively tuneful, powerhouse live sound.

The band formed transatlantically in the summer of 2009 when a practice in a downtown Chicago studio led the Welsh lads to lay down the basic concepts of what would be their sound. It may have been the influence of the big city or big dreams but each member became ever more excited and focused upon creating something fun and original. The outcome, disco flecked math pop with insatiable four to the floor rhythms, precise guitar riffs and addictive vocal refrains that weave their way into your head and wont let go for days! On their return to the UK the band have progressed rapidly, moving to Cardiff and establishing themselves in the local scene, releasing their debut EP 'Crossing Over' in February 2010, attracting over 2000 online downloads.
