British pop band, The Vamps, have kicked off their comeback to the music world. The band began teasing their new project, a full-length studio album called “Cherry Blossom” a few weeks ago. And, what followed were multiple song teasers and news of a fresh new single off the upcoming album. Today, that single sees light in the form of the group’s pop-rock ode to love, ‘Married in Vegas’.
The Vamps announced the single via social media. And, the post was accompanied by a heartfelt caption, reading: “Cherry Blossom signifies rebirth, 2 years in the making, thank you for your support and patience.” In addition, the single arrives with a brand new music video. Interestingly, the group offers up something entirely new with the visualiser.
So, what’s new? The video sees the boys dressed to the nines in shimmery, black and gold, accompanied by an all gold dancer in interludes. So, it would seem that the video is a reflection of all the strange happenings one would think of when you think of Vegas.
A New Musical Era for The Vamps
‘Married in Vegas’ sees The Vamps having fun. Lyrically, the boys write about falling in love – fast and hard. Bradley Simpson sets the tone, singing, “No good for me or my frame of mind/ I think about you all the time/ A pretty little thing could wreck me 25.” He continues with a melodic plea: “Just say the words, and I’m all ears/ Let’s turn a drink into five years.”
‘Married in Vegas’ is An Ode to Love
Further, the boys toy with the spontaneity and impulsiveness that comes with “getting married in Vegas”. With the track, the Vamps detail a passionate but sweet romance. So, the new single from the boys is less about recalling a night out, and more about explaining this ‘head over heels’ love with an apt analogy.
Complete with 80s style electric keys, reminiscent of Van Halen and the like, accompanied by blood-pumping guitar riffs, the track is a sureshot earworm. If this single is anything to go by, ‘Cherry Blossom’ will be welcomed with open arms.
