Today, our new music spotlight is on Vinyl Staircase.
Line-up: Michael Thorpe (lead vocals/guitar), Jake Andrews (guitar/vocals), George Ogle (guitar/vocals) and Luke Andrews (drums/vocals)
About: Surrey four-piece Vinyl Staircase are making waves in the UK guitar scene with their psych-tinged rock ‘n’ roll, which has seen them support the likes of Wolf Alice, Sunflower Bean, Blossoms and Swim Deep, as well as get press from BBC and ITV News.
What Hidden Herd say: Woozy guitars, timeless melodies and strutting bass combine on Vinyl Staircase‘s latest hazy nugget; the sort of sun-bleached soundtrack that’ll make you want to kick back in a stripey deckchair, crack open a frosty one and get your summer on.
