RVG will be live in-store at Rough Trade East to perform tracks from their debut album 'A Quality of Mercy', released 6th July on Fat Possum.

Order RVG's new album HERE, or purchase on the night of this in-store, and get your copy signed by the band.

RVG – Romy Vager (vocals, guitar), Reuben Bloxham (guitar), Angus Belle (bass), Marc Nolte (drums) and known less formally as the Romy Vager Group – deliver a refreshing kind of honesty and intelligence that you don’t hear in your everyday garage band.

Their songs, which already sound like classics, traverse through the myth of the tortured artist, the isolation of being trans, falling in love with a computer and the feeling of awaiting your fate on death row and are played with wit, compassion and commitment, evident in singer Romy’s delivery.

All of the songs on A Quality Of Mercy find Vager trying to move beyond ego, beyond the simple confessional of the songwriter, hoping to find perspective on both world and self. In such, these songs are at once personal and universal, intimate and grand, timely and timeless. And there’s eight of them, adding up to a perfectly-formed debut that says so much, yet gets out in under half-an-hour.
