SOUNDS LIKE: The Horrors, Modern day 13th Floor Elevators
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: Its not often that we hear a solid single break through from Italy.
The Vickers have a pretty good formula going on with “She’s Lost.” A drum line as if setting the pace for a crash course to the sun, a bass keeping the band on track while adding its own post-punk line, guitars blazing like solar flares, and helium induced vocals to keep on par with someone like Ariel Pink. Hailing from Florence, Italy, The Vickers have been reminding psych enthusiasts that great rock can come from more than just the UK and the US.
Touring with acts such as the Joy Formidable and the La’s, the 60’s/90’s brainchild band from Italy are back with “She’s Lost” (released May 14th) and are looking to stretch their notoriety across the Atlantic. From what they have pieced together on this track, they have a solid chance to make some waves and turn some heads. The band is currently working on a new album with this single included and, if all goes well, will get some tour time over across the sea.
The single “She’s Lost (7” Vinyl Single)” is out now on Cybertree/Foolica Records.
