Characteristically the sound of no other band on the planet, the new single from The Vultures is an end-of days melange of rumbling bass, colossal toms and staccato strings, set to a dizzying chant-like refrain that serves as an intoxicating and invigorating treatise on unity, the search for self-importance and, not atypically for a Vultures song, death. In the accompanying video, the ghoulish puppet stars of ‘Vlad’ make a reappearance, leading to evil deeds being done within a cave-like coastal lair.

About The Vultures
The Vultures are an evenly split male/female sextet whose members descended on the capital from five countries spanning three continents. Comprising three-part vocals, cello, violin, viola, bass and drums, the band bonded over a shared belief that rock’n’roll has become stiflingly dull. The Vultures are anything but, eschewing guitars, synths and digitalism in favour of intense in-the-flesh performance. The group’s darkly gorgeous soundscape is sculpted from a broad range of material, encompassing influences from Bjork to Blondie, Serge Gainsbourg to The Pixies, and resulting in innovative and impassioned alternative song. Set to contaminate the public consciousness in 2015, The Vultures’ debut album, ‘Three Mothers Part 1′, was released on Ciao Ketchup Recordings on February 6th 2015.
