"Introducing Vigilance Committee"

Vigilance Committee is four mad musical chemists from England’s West midlands, who expertly mix and blend vast musical ingredients to create a dynamic sound that effortlessly walks the tightrope between indie-rock & electro-pop. Each song is a unique balance of driving melodic indie rhythms, catchy vocal hooks, dance-laden synth pop and euphoric electronica. ’1931' are more parts warm indie rock sound, with a small dose of energetic dance synths, while ‘Until We Dance’ is packed with equal parts percussive indie rock and euphoric synth filled dance. - Kick Kick Snare

On with tonight’s main feature and after a technical hiccup involving a laptop, Vigilance Committee show us what they’re all about with opener ‘ILY’. Indie guitar hooks laced with electronics and catchy drumbeats get the room moving and the imagination racing. The songs have an originality and playfulness to their structure and range that, without knowing it, I’d been craving all evening. The voice of David Minnis is truly the standout of the night however, projecting a warmth and emotion that seems to wrap its arms round your ears.

It’s no secret that Manchester has been graced with some of the finest music in history and in Vigilance Committee, we seem to once again find ourselves with a true bunch of innovators on our doorstep that you don’t even have to head down to Heaton Park to see. - Quenched Music - Words by Jonny Lewis


"New music: Vigilance Committee"

It’s always a good sign when you hear a new band and they sound like they’ve been around for years. It’s also a good sign when you carry on listening and the new band just get better and better – as is the case with Lichfield based four-piece Vigilance Committee.

See, told you they were good! They’ve got a range of influences, from straight down the line indie-rock to more nuanced electro stuff and have been likened to bands as diverse as Interpol, LCD Soundsystem and Daft Punk. - ALL-NOISE


"VIGILANCE COMMITTEE @ GEORGE IV"

...the newly-formed Vigilance Committee took to the packed-with-tech stage of The Back Room. The hum and jangling rhythm of lead guitar, and the insistent vibration of the bass were immediately prominent in their catchy sound. The crowd were densely packed – more so than I’ve seen at many a gig here, the atmosphere couldn’t have been any more vital. There’s a hypnotic quality to the lead guitar’s repetitive pulsating strumming and the percussion (from drummer Sean Bradnick and synths played by multi-instrumentalist, Tom Coyne) gave a dynamic lift to the opening track beyond the ordinary indie fare... - Rich Spencer - LichLive.co.uk
