Victory Through Sound

Charged with a desire to make ‘big-on-melody’ epic and anthemic guitar songs, Andy Vaughan (Ex – 90s hopefuls Boy Girl Soup) formed Victory Through Sound with Spencer Parker (various 90s post punk bands) during the winter of 2015. With a vision to craft wide-open and expansive, heroic sounding songs, Vaughan and Parker spent 2016 writing and recording demos and piecing together the remainder of the band. Michael Groves (Ex – Crystal Trip) joined on bass guitar mid 2016 and in the autumn, Al James (The Clooneys) completed the line-up on drums. Notably in 2016, the band were approached by Lester Square (Ex-Adam and the Ants, The Monochrome Set guitarist) and together they wrote the instrumental track, Ricochet. Further to this, the band demoed Circus Girl featuring guest lead vocals by James Atkin, Ivor Novello winner and frontman to the globally successful band EMF. Victory Through Sound write about memories of childhood and youth, hope, fear and courage, and even the film icon Steve McQueen in the song The World Has Lost All Colour. Musical references are extensive but draw from The Clash, Pixies, Skids, Big Country, Editors, The Dandy Warhols, Manic Street Preachers, The Smiths and great British 80s and 90s guitar pop….This year also saw Victory Through Sound have play at The Great Escape (in association with End of the Trail Records and Fierce Panda) the globally recognised music event held in Brighton featuring the best in unsigned artists.   The Circus Girl E.P. is Victory Through Sound’s debut release and is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Deezer, Spotify and other usual channels.
