‘Keep Your Eye On The Road’ is the first single off Vickers Vimy’s new record ‘Atlas Of Hearts’.
A bittersweet song of friendship and loss, it features a heartfelt vocal harmony evoking Robert Plant and Alison Krauss (Raising Sand).
Vickers Vimy ramble the late hours brandishing acoustic guitar, upright piano and a lovelorn brass ensemble to quell a pair of drunken hearts ‘howling at the moon’.
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” will be 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 had the amazing fortune to support the late John Martyn. They have have supported the Hothouse Flowers, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Mundy. They have shared the RTE Music Train with Christy Moore, Kodaline, Lisa O’Neill and Jack L.
