Sound of Vitruv


If you are looking for new music and play yourself, you’ll love the sound of VITRUV. Just as the guys say themselves, the sound is not easy to put into one genre. You will find pop, rock, blues, jazz and singer-songwriter elements in their songs. Highly inspiring sounds and nice musicians from Austria you need to know, no matter in which part of the world you live. Find VITRUV’s sofasession profile here. The guys also have a band portrait on YouTube – a very cool idea to get to know the band. Read below to find the info in English.

Why VITRUV? Vitruvius Pollio was a roman architect who said music is the foundation stone of all arts. What a nice quote. This philosophy is part of many songs – perfection of life through music.

How did you find each other? Somewhat around 2007 – 2008 the band members used to play in different other bands and groups. One day decided to start making music together in an own project. Luckily they did, as their fans say.

How do you write songs? VITRUV get inspiration from daily life. So writing songs feels more like a free psychotherapist.

Describe your genre: Difficult to put in one sentence. It is a bit of everything, pop, rock, blues, singer-songwriter. Each of the musicians adds a bit of themselves to the songs.

What is your secret wish? To be just a musician. Having some fans who enjoy listening to their music. Making music together is like having a good time with friends, in a stimulating activity. Music drives us – something all of you surely relate to.

Their newest album UNU can be found here. For more info check their website or follow on Facebook and Twitter. Watch them live on YouTube and Vimeo. Find the songs on Soundcloud, MySpace. If you’re an advanced social media user, check also Google Plus and Backstage.
