A love story between English and Dutch musicians that started over a decade ago is still alive in Lockdown 2020 and showing devotion to releasing good music. Back in the summer of 2008 two Funk and Soul DJ’s, Tim and Ton based in the historical town of Dordrecht, Netherlands reached out over the sea to songstress Laura, living in Brighton in the UK. A match was made quickly, and plans hatched to get together on stage and in the studio to see what could happen. The rest, as they say, is history! To date Laura Vane and The Vipertones have released 3 studio albums, 7 Eps, a string of singles and have toured all over the globe. Continue reading
This is your chance to get almost everything Laura Vane & The Vipertones released in a single purchase. The first album is only still available on cd but both ‘Sugar Fix’ and ‘BodyQuake’ are still available on vinyl. On top of that we throw in a 12″ with some great remixes of their underground b-boy hit ‘Roof Off’. Head over to Social Beats Records and get it while you still can!
Last week we had a lot of fun writing new songs for our 4th album! All of the band took their instruments on a journey to GAM studios in Waimes, Belgium to pour their energy into a bunch of new tunes and ideas. Lots of recording, lots of joking, lots of discussions and lots of filming! We have a cool new live video to give people a sneaky peek of one of the songs we worked on in the early sessions. We hope you like it!
Last Thursday we were invited to come play the Totaalfestival in Bladel, it’s been a while since we played but we’re still enjoying it very much. Hopefully you can see us on stage more often soon!
It took a while but now we’re finally on Bandcamp as well. Looks like a great tool to promote our music to all of you out there. We tried to put all our releases up there so you can have a good listen and if you decide to support us, you can even buy it immediately from Bandcamp. Very cheap but you can always decide to donate more if you thinks it’s worth it 😉 Seems like you can also easily share it with all your friends since they supply sharing and embedding codes etc. So you know what to do, don’t wait any longer and have a peep. Hope you enjoy https://lauravaneandthevipertones.bandcamp.com/
Hot Money is the third and new single from Laura Vane and The Vipertones’ hugely colourful and diverse third album ‘BodyQuake’. Although on first listen this may sound like an all-out pop song, once you start to follow through the groove to the first chorus, you will feel yourself almost being subtly steered by the guitar, and the drums into the flow. Laura delivers a seductive punchy vocal, whereas the keys are featuring very selectively and with character. You get the feeling that Laura and the band have been honing their craft further still to provide full-power catchy songs. It’s a total foot-tapper, that is until you feel the urge to get up and join in with the ‘ow ow ow ow’! Continue reading
