By The Vestals
The Vestals are breaking Indie-Rock band from South Wales with a euphoric sound that really establishes them as a band to look out for in the next few years. This AA-side 'Perfect Pain'/'Seventeen' released on Killing Moon Records, contains two unabashed, catchy, well-written songs that sound perfect for a summer playlist and this year's open air festivals.
Perfect Pain is a fast-paced, soaring statement of intent from the band and a perfect single to build up the hype for the emerging band. Seventeen is definitely cut from the same cloth but still adds something different, with a great guitar riff and massive chorus. The sound of these singles puts me in mind of the long line of emerging bands such as The Chevin and NME's beloved PEACE and more than earns the band a place among them.
The band have toured with bands such as Swim Deep and Bastille, meaning that this band are showing a lot of promise and are likely to join bands such as the above as the 'in' bands to get for this years festivals such as local ones for me such as Live At Leeds and Beacons Festival. And now they will be touring the UK with the band Pure Love.
For fans of: PEACE, Neon Trees, Wild Nothing and The Chevin
