VITAL will be bringing to light 10 splendid songs you should bury yourself in! Do not expect “genre barriers”!

Max Swan – Woohoo (Live from The Church)

Hailing from Philadelphia, Max Swan’s live performance of one of his best tracks off his 2021 album ‘Slow Jail’, ‘Woohoo’, is an impeccable blend of indie r&b, neo soul with nu jazz soundscapes, filled with soulful vocals and an addictive saxophone, genuinely combined with the church’s ambience… 21st century soul, destined for repeated listening!

Jason Fox – Hard Feelings

US Air Force Veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm, Jason Fox, is also a competent singer-songwriter, and his latest single ”Hard Feelings’ is a great sample of bluesy, alternative rock with powerful, expressive vocals, poignant lyrics, and outstanding guitar work!

Kyrill – Lovely Lies

A timeless vintage pop treasure by the multilingual indie-pop crooner based in Brussels & Paris, Kyrill that will give you the shivers with its alluring melody and intimate vocals…. 

LOV – universe

The latest single from Brooklyn alt-pop songwriter LOV, taken from his upcoming debut, is a finely-calibrated indie pop single that will lead you to the most memorable, melancholic dancing you’ve ever experienced….

“This song is like Chapter 1 of the album’s story. I wrote it a few years ago when I was really feeling the melodrama of being in my late teens and early twenties, and the lyrics were so sad but it always had this heavy club beat behind it in my head. I wanted to feel like I was literally taking off and leaving Earth in a spaceship because there’s no other choice, but make it danceable.” (LOV)

Savage Republic – Nothing at All

Taken from underground pot punk veterans Save republic’s 2022 album ‘Meteora’, ‘Nothing at All’, is a dystopic, post punk banger with gritty bassline and authoritative vocals…. This band never gets old!

Ink Sticks & Stones – Les derniers vestiges

Toronto-based composer-musician, Ai Rei Dooh-Tousignant is behind the Ink Sticks & Stones moniker, and ‘Les derniers vestiges’ is a transcendent, neoclassical composition from her just released EP ‘Après la tombée du ciel’… A cathartic experience!  

Child Seat – Burning (ft. Jeff Schroeder)

Smashing Pumpkins’ guitarist Jeff Schroeder collaborates with the powerhouse alt pop duo Child Seat’s latest single ‘Burning’, and the result is a compelling, super catchy alt pop opus with a great guitar solo by the “Master”!

Jeshua – Esther

A stunning and ultra addictive sample of dreamy, lo-fi rock by the Dundee-born solo artist based in Glasgow, Jeshua, released on legendary Electric Honey Records!

Voxtrot – The Start of Something

‘The Start of Something’ is brand new video (no song though!) by the critically acclaimed indie pop/rock band Voxtrot, taken from the digitally remastered ‘Early Music’, -out today-, which is a collection of the band’s first two EPs, 2005’s ‘Raised By Wolves’ and 2006’s ‘Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives’. This one sounds like an atypical marriage between Morrissey and Belle & Sebastian!

Death Lens – Defy

86 seconds are more than enough for Death Lens to unleash all the anger for the current state in USA (and not only we’d add!)… A pure force of anger from minorities… Punk to its very last bone!
