Speaking about the band, a spokesperson said: "Emerging from the want to break away from the norm and create a new exciting sound, Pluviam were formed in February 2018 by singer James Riley and drummer Mike Tabone.

"The two worked together to test and experiment with the extremities of sound, creating new musical textures that compliment a vast expanse of influences, which range from indie-pop to metal to 20th Century expressionism."

After three headline gigs at the popular Birmingham vanues The Sunflower Lounge, The Flapper and Actress & Bishop, the band have now settled on their settled line-up, with original members Tabone and Riley joined by full-time guitarist Tom Boddison and live bassist, Calvert Stephens of Effigy For Sleep.

They release debut single Searching, and will launch it with another slot at The Sunflower Lounge on Smallbrook Queensway in Birmingham city centre.

The gig takes place on June 27, with support from Coventry's Luna Kiss and former Unsigned column stars The Creature Appeal, from Dudley and Halesowen. Doors open at 7.30, and tickets cost £6.60.
