‘Chicago’ is the third single from the album ‘Atlas Of Hearts’ and was inspired by the ideas of Guglielmo Marconi who transmitted wireless signals from Clifden, Co. Galway to Glace Bay in Nova Scotia. The song imagines being out on a boat in Clew Bay as a storm bears down and giant sparks from the Marconi Station appear in the distance like fireworks crackling in the clouds.
In a landscape that can truly rattle your bones and inspire your dreams Vickers Vimy continue to document in song the wonders of the Wild Atlantic.
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, The 4 Of Us, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Mundy. They have shared the RTÉ Music Train with Christy Moore, Paul Brady, Kodaline, and Jack L.
