VLMV (pronounced ALMA) is a self-proclaimed ambient-ish post-something singer-songwriter, composer and producer from London.
Formed in early 2015 and fronted by songwriter/producer Pete Lambrou, VLMV released their debut mini album via Fierce Panda Records in August 2015, receiving critical acclaim and described by Lauren Laverne (BBC6 Music) as “a beam of light through a dark, cold night”, followed shortly after by ‘ReWorkings & Remixes’; a digital overhaul of the esteemed debut.
VLMV’s 3rd studio album "Sing With Abandon" released on Pete’s own label Nice Weather for Airstrikes, was born from a global pandemic, multiple lockdowns and a country deciding to break up with it’s loved ones, described by ProgMagazine as “Gently epic…A proper album, then, as best experienced as such.”
Live, Pete deploys multiple loop stations, delay pedals, piano and guitar to create a slow-moving, high-flying soundscape of luscious gravitas, typically built from scratch loop by loop, layered with various instruments with his intimately delicate voice hovering above.
As a composer for Erased Tapes Music, Pete’s work has been heard in household’s all over the world across commercials, film and television, with clients including Ikea, Vice, Hyundai, Rolex, BT Sport, Amazon, The BBC, S-Power and The National Trust. VLMV’s music has also been as far reaching, with high profile spots on MTV’s Teen Mom, The Republic of Sarah, Amazon’s The Grand Tour, Santander and even on The Champions League Final via BT Sport.
