Maybe you heard about this band maybe not..
In February the four young musicians and the manager of Viola Beach, an indie band from Warrington, died after their rented car collided with a barrier on a raised bridge outside Stockholm, plunging the car into the canal below. The accident, after their first foreign gig, happened on the way to the airport.
Now their newly released posthumous album looks to be rocketing to the number one spot, after their debut single, Swings & Waterslides, stormed the charts just days after their tragic deaths. Critics are praising the record as an album “that will leave a smile on your face”, despite the tragic circumstances. The style is full of energy recalling with vampire weekend and artic monkeys, they could have gone so far 🙁
