“With an upbeat tempo and Robertson’s lyrical maturity, the three-piece deliver another fan favourite”.
The third release from their upcoming second album sees Vistas provide us with yet another jovial indie bop in the form of ‘Dayglow’.
The new track slots perfectly in and amongst the band’s other fast-paced, bouncy, alternative tunes with frontman and lead vocalist Prentice Robertson’s Scottish twang being as loud and proud as ever. The new album, ‘What Were You Hoping To Find?’ follows on from their highly praised 2020 debut and is set for release in August this year.
Robertson described how he made the most of being stuck inside over the past year: “I wrote ‘Dayglow’ right at the start of lockdown and it was intended to be an optimistic song. At that time, I would often daydream about things I wanted to do when lockdown ended, and I found that was a good way for me to deal with what was happening. It made me miss those lost nights with my favourite people, but also made me optimistic that they would happen again and that’s what helped me pull through”.
And ‘Dayglow’ does just that. With an upbeat tempo and Robertson’s lyrical maturity, the three-piece deliver another fan favourite. With an ethereal feel to the opening seconds, the tune soon flows into Vistas’ distinctive sound driven by both bass and drums, alongside a powerful vocal performance. Remaining as effective, whilst simplistic, as ever, the band produce another track that urges you to sing along, tap your feet and get involved.
For fans both new and old, Vistas are yet to disappoint, and with a new album on the horizon, it is only a matter of time before we are graced with yet another indie hit ready for festival season in the very near future.
