With a name like Vigilantes, I couldn’t help but be curious. The band originally began as an Arctic Monkeys tribute group, but soon discovered they wanted to create their own music and here they are. For fans of The Killers, The Strokes and The Hunna the boys capture the indie pop / rock and alternative genres and do it so well. Is there anything they can’t do?
Their passion for music is evident when watching their videos, I was caught up in the energy and feel-good vibes bouncing around the stage. Due to this, I ended up watching all five of their YouTube videos and I can’t say I regret it. Instead, I added all their songs to my Spotify playlist for later listening. Deservedly the boys have shared stages with some big names, the likes of Circa Waves, The Sherlocks and Fickle Friends.
2020 might be slow for other bands, but not Vigilantes. The lockdown certainly isn’t stopping them, they will be a part of BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Isolation on Saturday 23rd May, so tune in and have a listen!
Stream their Spotify below and look out for their catalogue of songs, including ‘Yuck’ a tune I can imagine making a lot of noise when venues re-open, ‘Trapped Inside Your Shadow’ and ‘The Way it Ends’ to be just a few!
