RVG – short for Romy Vager Group – is a veritable who's who of the Melbourne, Australia scene. Band leader Romy Vager has played in groups like Avoid and is backed by members who've performed with acts such as Drug Sweat, Galaxy Folk, Rayon Moon, and numerous others. Like the combined forces of the Planeteers summoning Captain Planet, RVG brings all the members prowess together in a singular, powerful vision. With their single "Alexandra," you get a taste of what the band excels at best – timeless, evocative melodies and instrumental arrangements that feel like they're channeling the spirit of '80s post-punk with a newfound shimmer of modern times.
