about

“Vickers Vimy push the envelope creatively, incorporating elements of Americana and Hibernia, whilst successfully drawing on contemporary sounds. It all makes for a terrific listen" Jackie Hayden - Hot Press
‘Bonfire of Dantes’ is influenced lyrically by the book ‘The Count Of Monte Cristo’ by Alexander Dumas, while musically it takes its cues from Calexico and the score of a Tarantino movie.
In a landscape that can truly rattle your bones and inspire your dreams, Vickers Vimy continue to document in song the wonders of the Wild Atlantic.

Hailing from Mayo, on the Wild Atlantic coast of Ireland, Vickers Vimy craft songs that dwell on the borders of Folk and Americana. Rich eclectic sounds anchor lyrical themes of scratched vinyl nights and hazy Sunday mornings. Their second album “Atlas of Hearts” is out now.
Vickers Vimy have collaborated with Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames & Swell Season) and had the pleasure of recording in the studio of Nick Seymour (Crowded House). Vickers Vimy have had the amazing fortune to support the late John Mar- tyn. They have also supported The Hothouse Flowers, The 4 Of Us, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Mundy. They have shared the RTÉ Music Train with Christy Moore,
Paul Brady, Kodaline, and Jack L.
"Vickers Vimy make a lovely sound, Atlas Of Hearts is an album I will be dipping into for months and years to come" John Creedon - RTÉ Radio 1
"Their unusual concoction of sounds and songs singularly stand out and effortlessly
breeze musically from one side of the Atlantic to the other. The old world and the new world meet" - David Dee Moore, Fatea UK & The Acoustic Yard
"Nice REM feel to this Irish Outfit" Ken Sweeney - The Irish Sun "Instantly timeless songs" - Here Comes The Flood
