PREP are a cross-cultural four-piece band made up of London-based Grammy-nominated producer Dan Radclyffe (AlunaGeorge, Foxes, Chronixx), French drummer Guillaume Jambel, who has worked with George Fitzgerald, Odyssey and Kasabian, Welsh keys player Llywelyn Ap Myrddin, and London vocalist Tom Havelock, who has written for the likes of Snakehips, Celeste, Anna Of The North.
They released their brand new single “Pictures Of You” last week via Bright Antenna Records, and it is the latest offering from their upcoming album, which is due for release in the autumn. Their music can be described as a cross between alt-pop, R&B, and funk, with influences coming from Kaytranada, Mac DeMarco, Thundercat and Japanese City Pop.
For their new single “Pictures Of You”, we can hear vocalist Tom gazing out the window whilst he sings his way through the song. The long-distance love affair has elements of funk, soul and whimsical pop whilst the breakdown gives the individuals their time to shine.
The artistic credentials of this group are second to none, having garnered support from the likes of NME, The Line of Best Fit and Complex, making their fusion of genres standing out in the crowd. With their upcoming album already on the horizon, they’re using their time in isolation to create and collaborate and are ready to unleash more music very soon.
