Having taken a year off we are happy to say we are back publishing various features on artists and bands throughout Ireland, We begin by wishing you all a wonderful new year and all the best for 2019, We are delighted to say that VICKERS VIMY are our first feature for 2019. Vickers Vimy have toured the Wild Atlantic Coast line for a number of years now.
Hailing from Mayo, on the Wild Atlantic coast of Ireland, Vickers Vimy craft songs that dwell on the borders of Folk and Americana. Rich eclectic sounds anchor lyrical themes of scratched vinyl nights and hazy Sunday mornings. Their second album “Atlas of Hearts” was released in March 2018, making the Rte Radio One recommends list, with the two singles ‘Keep your eye on the road’ and ‘Mermaid Of Luna Park’ being playlisted.
Vickers Vimy have collaborated with Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames & Swell Season) and had the pleasure of recording in the studio of Nick Seymour (Crowded House). Vickers Vimy have had the amazing fortune to support the late John Martyn. They have supported The Hothouse Flowers, The 4 Of Us, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Mundy. They have shared the RTÉ Music Train with Christy Moore, Paul Brady, Kodaline, and Jack L.
In a landscape that can truly rattle your bones and inspire your dreams Vickers Vimy continue to document in song the wonders of the Wild Atlantic. You can catch VICKERS VIMY live when they will be performing with EMMA LANGFORD at the Foxford Sessions in February 2019.
