Vital Sparks

Come and celebrate the launch of Vital Sparks’ debut album, ‘Tailspin’!

Headed by Glaswegian-born Andrew Stark, Vital Sparks are a five-piece alt-rock band based in Melbourne/Naarm. The band’s self-produced songs take cues from jangly post-punk acts, 90’s slacker rock, and the sullen tail end of Britpop. A natural yet significant progression from previous work, Vital Sparks’ new tracks cohesively tie together wailing guitars, smooth bass lines, and introspective lyrics into a collection of songs that are as sincere as they are catchy.

Joining Vital Sparks will be Malibu Spacey. Melbourne/Naarm band Malibu Spacey makes music that’s all jangly 12 string acoustic guitars, intricate lead lines, three- part vocal harmonies and noodly bass grooves. The sound takes pieces of 70s country rock, dreamy folk rock and modern indie.

Cassettes of ‘Tailspin’ will be available to purchase. Cassettes include a Bandcamp download code, a bonus track, and stickers!
$10 entry, $25 for entry plus cassette & sticker bundle.
