Band To Watch: The Vestals

By Will Oliver, May 14th 2012 MP3 Music Video Video

The Vestals music video of “Perfect Pain” is just the band hunched tightly together, banging out an intimate performance of their incredible debut song, “Perfect Pain”. Aside from the image you see posted above, and the music video, a hazy cloud comes between us and the band. They haven’t revealed much about themselves other than what they have decided to share on their facebook, and tumblr. All I know is that they’re a 5-piece from South Wales.

They described themselves as an melancholic indie-pop band in their email to me. Don’t think any of us could argue with that. A modern comparison would be Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, but there is something about this band that makes them stand out from the rest of the crowd.

The Vestals come from that special breed of bands that come out of the gate holding their heads higher than the rest. This isn’t your normal debut single. No, this is something very tight, above the rest of the fold. I think these guys are headed towards big things. Don’t sleep on them.
