In It Together Festival


Edinburgh’s Vistas have been surging to the forefront of the indie-rock scene over the last
few years with a steady stream of catchy, radio ready releases leading the band to pick up
extensive praise from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music, DIY Magazine and
Clash Magazine among many others – With every release defining the band in a clearer
light, Vistas now come through with their latest single ‘Eighteen’ which will only continue to
solidify their position as clear ones to watch for the year ahead.

Having picked up over 15 million streams and cultivating 650k monthly listeners on Spotify
in a short space of time, the Scottish trio have quickly become known for their brand of
colourful and energetic guitar-based indie pop and are quickly beginning to show their
universal appeal. Vistas will be returning to their relentless tour schedule in 2019 with
confirmed support slots for later in the year alongside Circa Waves and Fatherson as well
as their own UK headline tour.

The new single ‘Eighteen’ is another high-tempo, hook-laden anthem, full of the huge
choruses and infectious melodies that have been cementing Vistas as one of the most
exciting emerging bands in the country right now. Produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The
Coral), ‘Eighteen’ comes through as part of Vistas upcoming four-track EP- Their first body
of work.

Speaking on the track the band explain “Eighteen is about looking back on the best summer
of your life and wishing you could go back to that moment. What often happens when you
look back on those moments is you can forget about some of the bad sides of those
experiences because your memory is clouded by nostalgia.”
