Leeds indie/pop quartet Victors have announced the release of their new single ‘Two Hearts’ for June 17th, produced by Andy Hawkins (Maximo Park, Kaiser Chiefs). Following on from the bright and buoyant debut ‘Tonight’ (which saw the band gain support from the likes of Huw Stevens and Charlie Ashcroft), it is fair to say this track was laden with expectation from their ever-expanding audience.
‘Two Hearts’ fortunately delivers with equal momentum and an even greater anthemic quality. A shining, euphoric introduction beckons in warm guitars and the emotive vocal of Harry Waterhouse. Joyously criss-crossing the lines of indie, funk and rock within its three minute run length, this is a piece of pre-meditated festival-ready pop, ideal for soundtracking hazy summer afternoons and late night tents. The Leeds lads are clearly inspired by indie aficionados such as Friendly Fires, The 1975 and Fickle Friends and their first two tracks follow suit in their free-spirited frisson.
The debut EP and full UK tour is expected for later in 2016 and with early support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Radio X, the band look set to take the year by storm.
