Moray band set to release new single to raise spirits amid the uncertain times

The Roov are releasing a new single Boys.

A Moray band are set to release their new single to lift spirits amid the uncertain times.

The Roov have been taking the music scene by storm playing sold-out venues across the country.

But recently the band saw their dreams of playing on the main stage along with headliner Nile Rodgers at this year’s Belladrum Festival dashed due to the coronavirus shutdown.

Last year the band played a packed-out Seedlings Stage at Belladrum and met iconic guitar legend Johnny Marr.

Band member Lewis Anderson said that the lockdown has had a major impact on what was set to be Roov’s “busiest summer ever”.

Frankie Ralph, Jordan Slater and Matthew Gault make up the rest of the band that was established in 2018.

Mr Anderson said: “We are really gutted about our main stage appearance at Belladrum being cancelled.

“We were hoping to experience playing on the same stage as Nile Rodgers as he is our hero and we draw some inspiration from him for our music.

He added about their excitement at releasing their latest single: “It is a good pop song produced by Scotty Anderson of Magic Box in Dundee and it will lift spirits at this time.

“We were scheduled to do the music video the week lockdown took place which is creatively frustrating but Troy Neilson has created a video with the concept of us writing the song which is brilliant to watch.”

The band’s new single Boys is out on Friday, May 8 on all major music streaming platforms.
