The Vickers Short Info

The Florence based new psychers will take you on a musical kaleidoscopic journey made of colours and space voices on flowing waves. They are influenced by the immortal 60's melodies mixed with a touch of 90's spleen. They toured Europe several times (recent tours December, February, May and October 2014) and they are always on the road. In the last months they have been choosed to play at Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. They played at Primavera Sound Festival the 31st of May 2014 on Adidas Stage.
The Vickers released the new album "Ghosts" at the end of March 2014, an example of their new sound, a clear example of modern expanded pop/rock! "Sounding like The Beatles after one too many acid trips" (Nooga - USA).
"Ghosts" is well received by critics, and the album has played on radios like BBC6, KEXP Radio.

"Completely psychedelic, headphones moment!”

IMPOSE MAGAZINE - NEW YORK (USA)
"There is a host of 60s-influenced psychedelia taking market over everything these days, and while more is merrier, The Vickers prove that only some bands can feel so purely true to that inspiration. The imagery in the video for "She's Lost", along with a healthy dose of vintage basses and hefty mustaches, proves that either time machines are real or reincarnation is"

AUDIOFEMME – Brooklyn (USA)
"All ten of Ghosts’ tracks together form a very well rounded bunch, with a variety of influences that present psychedelia in new lights”

LIVE FOREVER - UK
"The Vickers formed in Florence, Italy a few years back, and offer up a wonderful slice of psychedelic pop in the form of ‘She’s Lost’ which sits comfortably in the same sonic stable as that currently being produced by the likes of Tame Impala and Temples."
