Scottish two-piece VUKOVI have recently released their brand new hit Kill It. This newest track follows on from previous release Slo, which came out in late 2020. Kill It has such a huge energy about it, mixing a heavier sound with electro pop elements. It’s so hard to resist putting this on full volume; with a very short and gentle mini-intro, you’re quickly thrown into its heavier sound.
Talking about the track, vocalist Janine Shilstone explains: “Kill It is a battle cry to the war that’s going on inside my head. The song is a war cry to my OCD demon I have to live with everyday. I’m telling it I’m not going to give up, I’m going to fight back. I know it’ll be a struggle but having that strong death wish towards it gives me comfort and strength.”

VUKOVI have also recently returned to LAB Records, with Kill It being the first track released. The label took a chance on the band and released their debut album which kickstarted the band. Since 2011 the band has changed, originally starting as a four-piece and now sitting comfortably as a two-piece.
“They took a chance on us by releasing our debut album which was the real beginning of VUKOVI. Our fan base and our craft has grown significantly since then and we trust that returning to and working with LAB will give our 3rd album the credit it deserves.”
Since starting, the band have released 3 EPs and two full length albums; VUKOVI in 2017 and Fall Better in 2020. 2020 was a hugely strong year with Fall better debuting at number 1 on the official Charts Rock and Metal Albums, alongside a sold out UK tour on launch week. The band have built up a hugely dedicated following, which will no doubt be excited to see them back on the road again.
With live music gearing up to return in the coming months you can catch VUKOVI hitting up a load of festivals over the summer.
You can see them at the following dates:
Slam Dunk Festival North – 4th September
Slam Dunk Festival South – 5th September
TRNSMT – 10th – 12th September
