Holy Vessels are a Brighton based five-piece who first formed back in 2009, the band quickly managed to secure slots at the likes of Glastonbury, Big Chill and Lounge On The Farm festival with their winning combination of stripped down rock, psychedelia and infectious country.
Since the band’s formative years they’ve continued to perform numerous high profile shows taking in numerous Communion Record showcases along the way, the band have in recent times been hard at work, honing their debut album, Last Orders At The Marshall Arms with producer Iain Harvie (Ex Del Amitri, Maccabies, Eileen Rose, etc.
The album is set to be released later on this year, but as a free taster, Holy Vessels offer up the wonderfully appetizing single Springtime Bloom. The track is a warm, friendly combination of acoustic guitars, infectious piano melodies and hushed drums, all pinned down by a hazy, country-tinged psych groove and topped by a delicious vocal croon bringing to mind a rootsy Mumford And Sons whilst retaining a sound all of their own.
Springtime Bloom is a delightful opening gambit, it’s a lovely slice of ear friendly, stripped back, rootsy rock with a memorable hook, delivered by a band very much on the up. If the rest of the album continues in the same rich vein, Holy Vessels could well be onto a winner.
