Vigo Thieves - Forever

Vigo Thieves have just released their new song and video, 'Forever'.

This is a real statement of intent and a positive display of creativity and ambition from a DIY band with no financial backing. I like to think of it as modern day punk, being the romantic that I am.

Vigo Thieves 'Heartbeats' and 'She's On Fire' videos released earlier this year have amassed a total of over 100,000 views on YouTube and a fan-made video from their T in the Park performance at the BBC Introducing Tent has reached over 11,000 views at the time of writing.

This is a band that recognise the importance of Social Media and quality content.

'Forever' stars Jody Latham from Shameless and gorgeous Mary Jane O'Harra in an epic 3 minute 27 second film of young love, dreams and tragedy shot by Shootback Productions.

The song starts with stabbing synths before a soulful vocal kicks in and leads the listener on a journey that matches the film perfectly. 

Let's live forever, together we can stay young
Let yourself surrender, together we can stay young
Just let yourself surrender

The first chorus is a total hands in the air moment before the beat and chiming guitar kick in.

We are blinded by lights
Forever falling through neon skies
I see a child as I look in your eyes
It keeps me believing in a place that we can go where we'll grow old

The chorus then lifts off, supersonic jet stream, leaving others trailing in the slipstream.

Check it out. The band have live dates coming up in London, Edinburgh and Glasgow with more to be announced.

Vigo Thieves are a band for the people. #believe
