Edinburgh indie rock/pop band Vistas have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album 'What Were You Hoping To Find?'.
The follo-up to last year's debut album Everything Changes In The End, will be out on 20th August via Believe. Pre-order it here.
Frontman Prentice Robertson said of the record: “It’s incredibly clichéd to call album two “the difficult second album” but I think that description really does ring true. When I sat down at the start of 2020 to try and write some new music there was so much uncertainty in my life. Our first record wasn’t released yet and I didn’t know how that would be received or where we would end up once it was out. As 2020 progressed it would be safe to say that this sense of uncertainty grew (for obvious reasons) and I think this is where the second album came from.
“Looking for some kind of answer is the common thread that runs through this album. On our debut, we focused on the transition from our teenage years into adulthood and on this album we asked the question: “now that you’re here, what it is that you want?”. All the tracks on this record look at something where uncertainty plays a large role and we felt the title ‘What Were You Hoping to Find?’ summed up the sentiment of the album as a whole. We ask a lot of questions across this album and I think it has helped us to answer them for ourselves.”
TakThe band have also shared their new single "Dayglow", “I wrote ‘Dayglow’ right at the start of lockdown and it was intended to be an optimistic song,” the band’s Prentice says. “At that time, I would often daydream about things I wanted to do when lockdown ended and I found that was a good way for me to deal with what was happening. It made me miss those lost nights with my favourite people but also made me optimistic that they would happen again and that’s what helped pull me through.”
