YOU CAN so hear it their sound, if you ask me: the sun. The West Coast gleams through those burnished guitars, those dusky vocals, fair glows from the song as a whole in the way the first Avi Buffalo album does; early House of Love does. Languor, sleepy eyes, coastal bliss.
Formerly trading as DIAZ, Vintage Fiction have Los Angeles shot through them. They’ve just released the rather lush “Alright, Okay”, a sleepy psych nugget if ever there were; go wash yourself in that below.
The track comes from Vintage Fiction’s forthcoming EP for UFO Therapy, Caution In Vogue, due out on June 11th.
Vintage Fiction originally started as Josh Campos’ solo project, recording on his laptop with no more than a USB mic, the Garageband package, and a little help from a friend on drums. The band has since expanded to include Sean Bloom on guitar and keys, Josh’s brother Fernando on bass, and Ennio Liverani on drums.
We’re told that the EP, Caution in Vogue, explores “the collateral damage of nihilism and indifference, the nightlife vice you find when moving to a new city, self-sabotage within relationships, and how the past destructively intertwines into today.”
