The Vestals – Perfect Pain (Single Version)

By Will Oliver, January 18th 2013


Last May, a young band named The Vestals from South Wales wowed me with their song “Perfect Pain.” They have kept relatively quiet since then.

They have re-record “Perfect Pain” and are releasing it as a 7″ single via Killing Moon Records. It’s cleaned up and while the song still stands strong, I think I still prefer the rawness of the previous version (one of my favorite songs of 2012).

Still, it’s a strong single and worth a purchase. It comes with b-side “Seventeen.”

Check out the new version of “Perfect Pain” below, along with “Seventeen.”

Band To Watch: The Vestals

By Will Oliver, May 14th 2012

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.

Yesterday I blessed you with my favorite albums from 2012, and now, here are my favorite songs from 2012. It’s always tough to narrow songs down to a list, even if the list is 100 songs long. A lot of great new music comes out at a rapid-fire basis these days, from the biggest artists, to the smallest.

When it came down to it, these were the songs that kept the best company of the last 12 months.

As always thanks to Camilo for the artwork. You can stream the songs themselves, or listen to one giant spotify stream right here.
