Vegas Nights - Touch and Feel​/​It Came As No Surprise
Label: Platform Records
Format: CDS


Emotionally-packed and immediate-sounding double A-sided single from Glaswegian indie rockers, Vegas Nights

What a global paradox that five Glaswegians woo the Japanese music scene and name themselves after that American adult wonderland known as Vegas. Compared to the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses for their emotionally-packed repertoire, Vegas Nights release their debut AA single in late October. The band's influence by the Cure is evidenced by the first cut ‘Touch and Feel.’ Immediately effusive, it embraces perculating guitar riffs and punchy vocals. The second cut ‘It Came As No Surprise embues a solid melody and masterful vocals. Punch-drunk drums, acerbic cymbals and heavy reverb come together on the chorus - a rousting guitar riff rounds off this revelation. The band members promised a sound that would encompass a variety of genres. They have done so and some of the guitar work by Johnny often recalls that of the Ventures. While it may take some time for them to acquire the magical chemistry of an established band like the Cure, they’ve captured the musical immediacy of the moment and look like they’re well on their way to cashing in their hard-earned casino chips.
