They release their debut album She on May 7th, 2012 on Something Nothing Records. It’s soulful, casual and accessible.
In passionate opener Dead Man’s Shoes Americana merges warmly with a clear and distinctive English voice. The Wayward Fall In Line is a lively and confident song and inspired acoustic number Feathers is intensely expressive. Pirates is another fast moving song with seafaring imagery.
Billy Vincent is a talented and energetic band with a variety of styles and atmospheric harmonies. They’re inventive and observant in the vivid pictures of human nature they create. These are entertaining artists with a great deal of character and a promising debut album.
