‘Valley of the Sun’ Released 23rd of Aug on FIFA Records
Although only in existence a 11 months, The Vincent(s) have been packing them into Irish venues and along with cohorts The Altered Hours, represent something of a sea change in music that has emerged from the Cork of 2013.
They set their stall out earlier this year with their debut ‘Asked Her to the Dance’ which caught the ear of Irish & international alternative radio. Raw recordings, noise and psych are the orders of the day.
Their roots lie in surf sounds and early 90s US alt-guitar groove, which sit alongside an unmistakable Irish vocal;
The Vincent(s) hooked up with Irish indie label FIFA Records to put out their debut, and will follow this up on the 23rd of Aug with the release of the ‘Valley of the Sun’ EP . This will be a 4 track offering on CD and download with an 8 track vinyl edition being released in Sept.
The band will undertake a full Irish tour in support of the release.

““Their debut single ‘Asked her to the dance’ is a bold statement from such a young band, there’s something special about The Vincent(s). These lads strip back the trickery and let the musicianship argue its case, the hook of ‘Asked her to the dance’ is too infectious to deny” – The Daily Shift

“The stuttered movement of the track makes way for an instant chorus that buries its way into the mind; it’s cry “I’m ready to lose” will definitely become a chant-along moment for indie club kids and concertgoers” Dublin Concerts.ie
