The Vultures

I’m delighted to have a guest blogger for Jillypopmusic. Desleyjane is from Australia and will be presenting The Vultures. I am always excited to discover new great bands and what better way than from the locals!

The Vultures is an Australian band – a trio from the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland. I went to a gig last year to see a colleague of a friend perform and she was in the lineup with 3 other bands. We stuck around to hear these guys and I am so glad we did. I’ve found a new favourite band – these guys are cool. It’s quite exciting to come across a band who are part alternative, part blues, and a lot of rock. They’re quite young but their sound is not.

They’ve been around since 2012 and they’re a passionate group of guys who are working hard to be heard – and they are well worth a listen. Their music is fresh but with a familiar feel thanks to the influence of some cool blues layering through their tracks.

The Vultures are currently writing and preparing for their next studio release, but they have kindly passed on their latest music video from The Vultures EPII – I’m so excited to show you this track! The song is called “Eleven Fifteen” and it is a lively and rocking track, well put together.

For an extra special treat, I’m adding my favourite song – “Shot Me Down”- a great video too.

Comprising Liam Bowditch (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Joe MacPhail (Drums/Percussion/Backing Vocals) and Jay Varudo (Bass GuitarBacking Vocals), The Vultures are definitely a band to watch.

A little word on the photography, since I’m a photoblogger at heart 😉

These photos were taken when I was still quite new to photography. Please forgive my lack of sharpness, but I think they capture the moments from the night. I had a blast watching these guys, I was entranced by the bass player!

Thank you Jill for inviting me to do this guest post for your fabulous blog. I am truly honoured and I hope that I’ve done your blog justice.
