The Vickers – She’s Lost

In the run up to their new album, Florence band The Vickers have realised a new 7” single, She’s Lost/All I Need via Cybertree Records/Foolica Records. Laced in hazy debt to the 60s it’s a smoggy and druggy trip from the four piece, lucid psychedelia of the type that isn’t found often enough. Andrea Mastropietro (vocals & guitar), Federico Sereni (bass guitar & vocals), Francesco Marchi (vocals & guitar) and Marco Biagiotti (drums & backing vocals) take us on a musical mashing journey, a myriad of tempos and styles. There’s the throbbing and insistent beats, the squirming and sprawling undulations, the urging to ‘Tell me all your stories, tell me how you feel, this is real, this is real’ in that sort of insistent ‘it is not real’ way, before the maraca beats and shaking drums build up to a crescendo. It manages to be everything to everyone without losing any impetus, excitement, or diminishing the delight of its homespun psychedelic vision.
