NEW MUSIC – Vandella
by Walter Price
San Francisco based harmonies to perfection Vandella is many things but certainly not resting themselves on any particular sonic perch. The California outfit have been compared to a smörgåsbord of historic names and rightly so. There is a sense of timelessness in their airy soulful indie rock sounds.
Their new single “A Feeling I’d Forgotten” from their forthcoming second release Strange Calls (due out April) is a laid-back offering that has thoughts of a delicious concoction The Blank Tapes, Big Star and, yes, Buckingham Nicks (the album ’73). The atmosphere is all there; easy, inviting and foundations of woodsy texture that carry the listener right along Vandella’s beautiful melodic ocean breeze.
This track is summer preparation…
Vandella: Tracey Holland, Chris Tye, Fritz Mueller, Dan Miller-Schroeder, TJ Mimbs
