Home/Blog/Blog: coming up/Strikingly talented: The Vices are here to stay

posted on September 1, 2020

The mix of surf rock, indie pop and garage from The Vices sounds like The Growlers and Cage the Elephant’s love child. The 4 talented artists Floris van Luijtelaar (vocals/guitar), Simon Bleeker (bass/backing vocals), Jonathan Kruizenga (guitar/organ/backing vocals) and Mathijs Louwsma (drums) act under the name The Vices since 2019 and are definitely here to stay. After playing their first shows with Yungblud, they appeared at Eurosonic Noorderslag and embarked on a UK tour. Their debut EP “Live Grows” yielded the band critical acclaim everywhere, 25 shows during Popronde, as well as a show with Feeder and support from national radio stations 3FM and KINK. Their second EP “Good Morning City, Now Let Me Sleep” is out now.

Listen & order “Good Morning City, Now Let Me Sleep” here.
