The Vandelles - The Vandelles
The Vandelles are New York's (if not the world's) finest purveyors of filth, fuzz and harmonies all wrapped up to make you simultaneously swoon at the melodies and your head vapourise from the gorgeous noise.
They define the distaff side of the Noir Rock sound.
The Vandelles take aspects of Link Wray and The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Ronettes and My Bloody Valentine, Buddy Holly and The Ramones to create a sound thats uniquely theirs.
While crooning softly in the background they take old school rock and roll your parents used to listen to and run it through screaming blown out amplifiers.
Having played all over the US, The Vandelles have developed an infamous live show that is an audio and visual assault. This show earned them a full US tour with The Warlocks and several festivals including CMJ, SXSW and Psych Fest.
Garage cats, cowboy beat poetry, and the Wall of Sound.
Turn your eyes inside out and dig the vacuum.
This is Noir Rock and Roll.
