Vukovi are a four peice pop rock band from Kilwinning, Scotland. The band are currently signed to LAB Records and are releasing their debut album on March 10th 2017! We caught up with Janine Shilstone, vocalist of Vukovi to see how to guys were getting on.

Starting with the basic question, how did Vukovi come about?

Before I joined, the boys were in a band called Wolves. They had a guy singer but it wasn't working out so the drummer at the time contacted me on facebook as we grew up together and he knew I sung in school.

He couldn't have timed it better because I was actually chucked out of another band the week before, for being a girl.

He asked if I fancied coming along for a jam, which I did, and it went surprisingly well. We all clicked instantly, got a few songs under our belts and about a month later one of our tunes got played on Radio 1. It was at that point we all kinda thought to ourselves "we can do this".

Your self-titled debut album with be released this march, what inspired you guys for the album?

We wanted to put a record out that shows how far we've come and how hard we've worked these past few years.

Not trying to be anyone else but ourselves and running with that risk of being different which isn't always well received. I think performance wise, and lyrically, the album has an almost bipolar character to it.

What can we expect from this album?

A true representation of what and who Vukovi are, and how we've evolved after working our arses off and being fucked sideways by various people.

It's a varied mix of dirty riffs, poppy melodies, becoming a stronger person and has more emotions than a hormonal teenager.
