Today South Coast punks Miss Vincent re-emerge with their brand new track The Lovers.
Demonstrating a clear sonic progression, the track showcases a fuller-throttled, punk influenced and more raw soundscape, acting as a statement of intent for forthcoming EP Somewhere Else due 19th May on Uncle M.
“We chose The Lovers as the first song for people to hear because it felt like the most natural thing to do. In that sense, it’s pretty indicative of what to expect from the rest of the record – honest and perceptive punk rock songs with great hooks that are a statement of identity for us. This is the kind of music we’ve always wanted to make and not to say that we’re not proud of our previous releases, because we are, but this record feels so, so right.”
– Alex Marshall, Miss Vincent
The evident change in musical direction on Somewhere Else was not a conscious one; after heading to a friend’s warehouse to organically craft and track the initial demos, vocalist Alex recalls on the first listen how he struggled to recognise the band on the recordings as his own – this was a more brash and fiery sound. After discussing this with the rest of Miss Vincent, the band collectively agreed that this record represented the sonic path they wanted to follow, showcasing a natural evolution from 2015s EP Reasons Not To Sleep.
Since their inception in 2013, Miss Vincent have grown to become an unrelenting live force – highlights to date include support to the likes of As It Is, Dead!, Bayside and Calabrese. 2017 will see the band push their live shows to the limit, with a short run in April and additional dates in the works:
5th Apr – Manchester, Retro Bar
6th Apr – London, The Islington
7th Apr – Hastings, Flairz
8th Apr – Basingstoke, Sanctuary
Armed with a game-changing EP, Miss Vincent are a more self-assured and determined band than ever before. This is the beginning of an exciting chapter.
