The Saturdays + Vegabond
The Saturdays are one of the success stories of the last year. In nine months, The Saturdays have had four top ten singles and a top ten album. Their current single, ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ – in aid of Comic Relief – is set to give the girls their biggest hit to date. Their debut album ‘Chasing Lights’ has now gone platinum. A new single will be released to coincide with the 23-date tour they have just announced.
There may be countless bands vying for attention in 2009, but Vagabond need not worry. In Alex Vargas they have a bold and ardent front-man, a cross between Michael Hutchence and Bryan Ferry, with a voice that holds a secret plan for world domination. Musically, they flit between earthy, soulful pop and synth-tinged rock—every track is steeped in melody and eager for the airwaves. A band this persuasive is sure to have a promising year ahead.
They are the first signing to the newly revived Geffen Records (UK) label. Their debut single ‘Sweat (Until the Morning)’ is released on 11th June and will be available as a free download through a Bebo promotion linking to iTunes. Their album ‘You Don’t Know The Half Of It’ to follow shortly after in August.
The band have been perfecting their live show and having been going down a storm as the main support for James Morrison on his nationwide tour. Audience reactions have been fantastic-a video clip of the guys doing an impromptu busking performance in Hammersmith Apollo Subway can be seen on their myspace-www.myspace.com/vagabond.
