Vickers Vimy Release ‘Atlas Of Hearts’

Mermaid Of Luna Park, Vickers Vimy’s second single off ‘Atlas Of Hearts’ follows hot on the heels of RTÉ Radio1 playlisted single ‘Keep Your Eye On The Road’.

The song was written after spending a day at Coney Island in New York City. Luna Park was an amusement park that opened in 1903.

The first two lines written were “It’s a feast of fables, a polaroid for the ages” which sets the tone for the song. It features Hammond organ and saxophone, and a nod to ‘Itchycoo Park’ that gives it breezy pop sensibilities and a New York urban jazz feel.

Hailing from Mayo, on the wild atlantic coast of Ireland, Vickers Vimy craft songs that dwell on the borders of folk and Americana. Rich eclectic sounds anchor lyrical themes of scratched vinyl nights and hazy Sunday mornings. Their second album ‘Atlas of Hearts’was released on March 31st.

Vickers Vimy have collaborated with Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames & Swell Season) and had the pleasure of recording in the studio of Nick Seymour (Crowded House). Vickers Vimy have had the amazing fortune to support the late John Martyn. They have supported the Hothouse Flowers, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Mundy. They have shared the RTÉ Music Train with Christy Moore, Paul Brady, Kodaline, Lisa O’Neill and Jack L.
