The Vivids formed in 2010. They play with an energy and focus that recall the deepest cuts from Factory Records poured
through a filter of shoegaze and hard-luck street punk. It is music that floats through dingy, smoky beach flat apartments, unnerving as it soothes, like the low menace of the ocean outside as you fall asleep on a pile of sheets on the floor.
