Vinyl Hero a four piece mish mash who, on first look, make you think it’ll never work but take the undeniably catchy writing, coupled to a penchant for soaring guitar and a thunderous rhythm section which could drive this EP right through a mountain, and the result is gloriously infectious. 2016 is the band’s 10th anniversary and they don’t show any signs of letting up.
Seven Days on a Train, that’s a long journey… but they certainly don’t let it drag. Like a bluesy rock missile barreling it’s way through the Rockies, this is the type of head-nodding classic that you wouldn’t mind being strapped to the front of. A huge sound that has all the hallmarks of a well established talents letting rip and loving every second of it. It’s not often that you can feel the unbridled joy of a band who put their sound together so seamlessly. It’s simply a five station whistle stop tour that you can’t help smiling throughout.
Go on, if you like early Nickelback (go on, deny it) or Queens of the Stone Age and fancy putting a smile on your face, buy a ticket and ride the Vinyl Hero train.
