Hello and welcome Everyone! Welcome to the newly designed and sweetened Laura Vane & The Vipertones website! We hope you like it, it has more eye-candy than ever before, and we’ve got lots to tell you! The release date for our second album ‘Sugar Fix’ is just around the corner, and we already have dates for radio shows and gigs offers from all over Europe coming in! So I guess those of you who bought our first album want to know what this album is like… Let us tell you a little bit about the popular, and most favourite songs from the album so far:
Capsize: Leading with a strong command from the drums and hand claps, Capsize takes you back to the days when wild dancing and big hair do’s were commonly accompanied by high energy horn lines and surf guitar. This record doesn’t hide behind anything, quite the contrary, it is raw, wide open and a new kind of old-fashioned fun!
Floating: The word ‘elevation’ is the first word in the chorus and this is precisely what this track makes you do. With an unstoppable swing-feel, this knee-knocker is guaranteed to put right any of your wrong moods, it is unashamedly happy!
Wicked Man: Crammed with sexy layers of vocals, hard punches from the horns and stabs, this is undeniably a dirty-flirty funk tune breathing in todays production. The Vipertones deliver it hard, hot and sticky, the rest needs no explaination.
Sugar Fix: The title track from the album, and defines the new feel and look for Laura Vane & The Vipertones. Yes, inspirationally they mainly tend to live in ‘yester-year’, but they work with today’s tools! This a classic shiny soul-pop song, with sing-along spots to get you hooked. Nah nah, n’nah nahhh!
A couple things have changed in the way that our albums come to fruition; there are now only 3 writers and some of the album was written in a traditional way, with the writers being present in one room together. For the most part of the previous album, everything was done online and demos were fired backwards and forwards on email until it became finished article! This time the musicians in the live band have given a lot more to the recordings and arrangements, and their sparkle has made all the difference. This project grows and grows, as do inspirations, ideas, creations, experiences and of course, relationships. The Vipertones are running an incredibly tight ship in 2011, the vision is clear and whilst we’ll say we’re getting serious, we’re all still having a lot of fun. You will know this if you have been to any recent gigs!
So now it’s March, only a month until we release ‘Capsize’, the first single from the new album. We’ve been pondering what to do for the video, and you will be pleased to hear that it is all coming together, with a plan to air the video early April! Keep your eyes peeled and if you are part of our facebook group, you will get an exclusive preview! There will be more information posted here as time rolls on, but for now, lets just say it will be involving some wonderful vintage swimwear, oooo!!
Something we’d like to mention: We really appreciate all the support we’ve had, and all the interest we’ve received over the past 18 months from everyone! It’s been really uplifting, energising and joyous to know that you’re all out there, diggin’ what we do and telling your friends about us. Please don’t stop telling your friends, THIS is how to do it, PR starts at home! We have a mailing list for you if you haven’t subscribed already, as well as a twitter page, facebook page AND myspace page.
Please feel free to have a browse through our gallery at some of the new photos, they will be updated every few weeks or so. We will be in contact again soon, otherwise don’t be shy, come and say hello on any of the forums we have out there, or even better come buy our new cd from little ‘Miss Vane’ after a gig one night.
All the best from the Holland and UK alliance, Laura Vane & The Vipertones!
