Just Announced: Your Vegas, Action Painters, and Picture Picture


Your Vegas
How does a band from a little town outside of Leeds end up going by the name Your Vegas? “It was one of our first songs,” says the band’s singer Coyle Girelli. “Your Vegas seemed to sum us up. It’s about escaping to a different place, wherever that is.”

Eventually, with a label deal in hand, Your Vegas started recording their album with David Bendeth (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Paramore) last April.

In My Head

Action Painters
Formed in a frigid Brooklyn basement in 2006, Action Painters are a scraggly band of misfits who practiced hard and won the big game. They play intoxicating power-pop-new-wave-soul that will make you shake your ass and pinch your girlfriend's skittles.

Picture Picture
"Another week, another band from New York. They might be pals with MGMT but the chances are you won't have heard of Picture Picture, which is a crying shame really given that their track Give Love is a sublime piece of sun-dappled pop wrapped in a hazy nostalgic fuzz of loveliness."
