Retriever are the dark underbelly of the Newcastle music scene. They are a frenzy of thick fuzz-bass, jagged reverb laden guitar, cutting drum-machine beats and screeching feedback topped with a slice of bitter female vocal. It’s a formula that since first playing in 2009 has seen them gain acclaim with support slots for The Slits, These New Puritans, Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles and Yuck among others as well as playing the Evolution, Middlesbrough Music Live and Tramlines Festivals.

After releasing debut single ‘Murder/Lion’ last September on Newcastle based Splash One Records 2011 has already seen the band collaborate with Berlin based producer Headman on both his track ‘Blue Girls’ and remixes of their own ‘Murder’.
