Moody pop with a youthful swagger. Vigilantes’ are a soundtrack approved of by indie giants. It’s music for the introverted extroverts, the night drivers, and the romantic dreamers. After being selected to play Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Vigilantes were championed by Mike Skinner of The Streets fame and in 2022, headed out on a National Lottery Revive Live tour.
Vigilantes are continuing the British tradition of taking American sounds and stuffing it with classic British tone. They do it so well that they have been placed on Radio 1’s Best Of BBC Introducing playlist and had repeat airtime on BBC Radio 1, Radio 6 & Radio X to boot. Noted by Fresh on the Net’s Tom Robinson as ‘On a mission’, Vigilantes are known as one of the hardest working live bands in the UK circuit.
