Vintage Blue's genre blending sounds add umph to contemporary indie tunes with deft, driving, rock soul. Vintage Blue’s unique sound and obvious mastery make their live performances thrum and vibrate with a powerful potency. Satiated fans, leave every show buzzing with energy. The diverse backgrounds of the members compose a band with wide-ranging lyrical aptitudes. Vintage Blues' members past musical lives took place in orchestras and jazz ensembles, marching bands more... and garage bands. Members cite an eclectic range of influences from Queen, Nirvana and Third Eye Blind to The Killers, Dashboard Confessional and bands like Atlas Genius or Fitz and The Tantrums. Recorded in a room the band dubbed the “home of the hooks,” Vintage Blue’s next release No Going Back delivers instrumentals layered with catchy Killers-esque synthscapes and percussive backdrops. Thoughtful harmonies, and the occasional saxophone, deftly weave through the beats. Just try not to dance along. Impossible. No Going Back shows the band’s progression to an indie/pop/rock sound, advancing from the classic rock feel of their debut album Strike The Mics. Astoundingly capable on a range of tunes, Vintage Blue has played with Fitz and The Tantrums, Sister Hazel, Dave Matthews Band, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes, and Lifehouse. Early attention and success launched Vintage Blue into a fast and furious upward trajectory.
