The Vapour Trails: On A Beautiful Day

Scottish jangle psych-pop band The Vapour Trails sing about having a nice time in the past, present and future on their new On A Beautiful Day EP. With the three-part harmonies riding on top of the music they invoke the joy of a glorious Summer day.

In their niche guitars reign supreme and fellow musicians will surely enjoy the delicate interplay on I Looked Into Your Eyes and Next Life. This EP is a crash course for ace melodies, taking cues from the evolvement of power pop since the late 60s, channeling the Byrds, Big Star and a bit of the Smiths thrown in for good measure.

Kevin Robertson: vocals, rhythm guitar
Scott Robertson: vocals, lead guitar, bass
Nicholas Mackie: vocals, rhythm guitar
Andy Crossan: bass
Kenny Munro: drums

  1. In the general style of Teenage Fanclub. I liked tracks 2 and 3 very much. One of those releases that seems to speak to me lyrically. Needed to listen to this, this morning. Very good.
