The English indie quintet The Vedettes, having played their first live performance on the 12th released their début single – Silver – on the 24th.
I suppose, fairly typically of me, that with only two songs around I would find myself drawn more to the unreleased demo rather than the song that made the cut – however both demonstrate something slightly different.
The unreleased song Get Up is a compacted pacey composition that fires sharp punches out of the speakers.
The song that has been released – Silver – opens with an echoing guitar accompanied by thudding percussion prior to flowering in to a breezy indie-dance track of classic construct. A powerful and precise performance on drum-kit gives the song a beefy spine while the guitars and bass fade to support a spotlight on the voice, an extended bridge, which sees out the track once again affords instrumentation and in particular guitar an opportunity to shine.
Underpinning the mainstream sounds of Silver lay some players with self-evidently expressive talent and I wish The Vedettes every success in finding a means to allow those abilities to shine through and afford the quintet a point of difference in a style of music that is, otherwise, a crowded market place.
Silver – The Vedettes is available on iTunes.*
