2020 lockdown album ‘Everything Changes in the End’ saw Vistas become one of the most promising indie up-comers of last year, whilst not wholly unique, ‘Everything Changes in the End’ should have been the album that 2020 festival goers belted from the shoulders of their drunken mates in 30 degree heat. I don’t need to state the obvious, we all know how last year went in the UK.
In saying that, the indie rock trio shed a glimmer of that nostalgic festival feeling in their newest release ‘Start Again’. Instantly introduced with the song title leathered in harmonious vocals and large drums, the track sets us up for the Vistas trademark: Big guitars, Big choruses and a song stuck in your head for the next week.
Okay, it’s not worlds apart from the debut album, perhaps it’s more polished and inventive in the band’s instrumentation and a touch slower than usual but who cares that it’s not groundbreaking-ly different? I certainly don’t. After watching back Snapchat memories of festivals in 2019, reminiscing over warm lagers and pop up tents. ‘Start Again’ provides hope for that festival feeling long before the gates reopen and for that, I can’t fault it.
‘Start Again’ is out now, you can find it through the link below.
