TVD’s 10 Weeks
of Record Store Day Vinyl Giveaways:
The Vespers,
The Fourth Wall

I first caught wind of The Vespers about a year ago, when the video for their spellbinding single “Will You Love Me?” hit the Internet. Led by sisters Callie and Pheobe Cryar and backed by brothers Bruno and Taylor Jones, the four-piece folk-rock outfit showcased an endearing, organic sensibility that’s easy to like.

With their first album behind them, the group is ready to show a starker, more sparse side to their songwriting. Their new album The Fourth Wall takes their strongest attributes to darker waters, resulting in a sound that’s both heavy and energetic.

The bulk of the material on The Fourth Wall was written and fine-tuned while on the road. The Vespers prefer to work this way, saying it brings out a chemistry between them and their audience that’s usually reserved for live performances.

It’s this transcendence that gives its name to the album’s title, the invisible “fourth wall” between the crowd and the band. Make no doubt, the songs comprising this album certainly bring the listener to another place. From the lurking rumbles of “Better Now” to the fast-paced climax of “Close My Eyes,” The Vespers’ music will rapidly turn heads in the months to come.

The group has a string of shows this week, including spots on Nashville’s Music City Roots live radio program (April 4) and an in-store performance at Grimey’s (April 5). In anticipation for the new album, we’re giving away a signed vinyl copy to one lucky winner.

In honor of Easter this Sunday, just leave us a comment with your favorite Easter candy for your chance to win. We’ll select a winner a week from today (April 9). Only U.S. residents, please!
