The Vapour Trails have just released their acclaimed and nearly instantly sold out debut LP SEE YOU IN THE NEXT WORLD. It's a a celebrated jaw-dropper of a first record, showcasing their their love of 60’s stalwarts like The Beatles, The Byrds, Love, Buﬀalo Springfield, The Who and The Kinks. You’ll also hear a healthy dose of later bands like The La’s, Stone Roses, Rain Parade and The Smiths. “Sonic Wave” is the new single from SYITNW, while the B-side is previously unreleased and exclusive to this single.
The Trails were formed in 2017 by father and son songwriters Kevin and Scott Robertson. Kevin taught young Scott some guitar basics, who quickly surpassed his dad’s meager guitar skills and set into his record collection for inspiration. Before too long the two started writing songs, and The Vapour Trails were born. The VT’s became complete with the addition of the indispensable Nicholas Mackie on guitar and co-vocals, old friend Kenny Munro on drums, and the newest Trail Chuck Milne adding his groovy bass to the mix.
