With appearances in Cardiff, Bristol, Brighton and London, The RPMs’ have also just announced a series of new live shows (hosted by indie club night extraordinaire THIS FEELING).

In addition THE RPMs have also announced two performances at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival on the This Feeling/Pirate Studios & Pretty Green Stage and The Hard Rock Stage respectively, plus a slew of festival appearances throughout Summer 2018 outlined below.
This news follows the release of the band’s stunning new video for ‘Let Things Happen’ via Xtra Mile Recordings.
New single ‘Let Things Happen’ raises the bar significantly for this young Brighton band. Following the success of their previous single, ‘Your Ghost’, ‘Let Things Happen’ is cast firmly in the mould of classic indie pop, fusing contemporary songwriting sensibilities with the fluttering sounds of lush keyboards interwoven with melodic, ringing guitars.
Speaking of the new single, singer Jack Valero said, “It’s written about how sometimes in life you just have to sit back and go with the flow and is very much based on where we are as a band right now. You face many difficult obstacles in life especially when you’re in a band and it’s all about how you overcome them and carry on, just like it says in the chorus ‘Pick up and start again’. It’s a positive message to not allow yourself to be defeated and also to remember sometimes to let go and live in the moment instead of trying to control it.
