Although we initially we quick to compare rising trio Vaults to their peers London Grammar, after seeing them play live in London earlier this year we could instantly tell that they were in a lane of their own. An impressive catalogue of tracks, backed with an accomplished performance to boot ensured that we were not surprised in the slightest when it was announced that they signed to to Virgin EMI.
Major label backing will allow the band to hopefully reach the heights that LG achieved in 2013, and with single releases like “Lifespan” we know that it won’t be the quality of their music which makes or breaks that journey. If you get the chance, I definitely recommend catching them at some point on their forthcoming UK tour:
7/19 Suffolk, UK @ Latitude Festival
8/8 Carleton, UK @ Beacons Festival
8/31 Laois, IE @ Electric Picnic
9/3 London, UK @ ICA (headline gig; tickets here)
9/5 Isle Of Wight, UK @ Bestival
9/7 Portmeirion, WE @ Festival Number 6
Stream: Vaults – “Lifespan”
Thanks to Stereogum for the premiere.
