The music of The Vitals is a vivid combination of post rock, dreamscape and psych with an unexpected punk element. Their music is driven strongly by heavy groove, lyrics and a truly personal live show.
Formed in Los Angeles, CA, the bands raw sound comes from the collaboration of friends and founding members, Kate Strand (vocals, guitar), Henrik Linde (guitar), and Dylan Howard (drums). Having no bass player, The Vitals fill sonic space in a way that you wouldn’t expect. With their experiential, ambient, and often brash guitar tones, moody vocals that range from angelic highs to a guttural low-rocking belt and dynamic drums that simultaneously kick you in the gut and kiss you on the cheek, the threesome is a true experience.
The Vitals released their debut album ‘Qualia’ in November, 2012 through ORG music. It was released on vinyl, CD and digitally. The Vitals then released their 2015 EP ‘Gold Night’ through ORG Music digitally and as a limited edition LP.
Both are available online and in select stores across America. In June, 2016 they released a gritty cover of Duran Duran’s ‘Come Undone’, a brilliant rendition of the classic anthem, that you can hear above.
Following the success of their music releases along with their tours of Brazil, the UK and North America, The Vitals will be releasing more new music and announcing upcoming tours mid 2016.
