"The Guardian - Now Is The Winter Of Our Discotheque"

Not just single of the week but
title of the week too. Not that such accolades are preventing XVectors from being thoroughly pissed off, directing their rage at the fact you never hear your favourite Weatherall tunes while out clubbing on a Saturday night. Their unhappiness is ironic though, given that wierd tracks like this are increasingly setting clubland's agenda. Better still, this bitchin'n'moanin' belter is brought to you by Oscarr, the spin-off label from Optimo, Britain's most exciting club night. With mainstream house and trance in retreat, and the creative void being filled by all sorts of twisted variants, dance music is heading towards a bright future where gurning idiots spilling stale lager on your trainers are barred forever. - The Guardian

"Mixmag - XVECTORS - Now Is The Winter Of Our Discotheque"

After a yearlong hiatus the Oscarr label return with a welcome release, Edinburgh quartet xVectors treat us to a deep, dubby disco number in "Now Is..."with a great insight into their social shenanigans from vocalist Rory Connaghan. Expect this to rock your nearest and coolest club. - Mixmag


The highly and justly hyped Optimo Singles Club (and related releases) series continues at long last with a 12" slab of dancefloor and orchestra-pit filling, sing along disco that should have every club in the land pogoing with joy. While summer smash hits are easier to churn out than fake nu-rave proper winter anthems have been thin on the ground and low on the list - until now!. Bring on Hogmany, yo! - Vice Magazine

Xvectors are a 4 piece band, who sound like a ten piece. They came together in mid 2003. They spent the first few months together writing and rehearsing the short, sharp bursts of intense, claustrophobic, guitar-driven dance music which they create. They soon caught the attention and imagination of music fans across Europe.

Their debut single “Movies” was released in July 2004. The initial pressing sold out and over the next year the band played live shows all over the UK and new fans were found in the shape of Soulwax, Tim Sweeney (DFA), Rory Phillips (OurDisco), Tom Middleton, The legendary Jamie Principle and Optimo’s JD Twitch and JG Wilkes, who made the decision to invite them into the OSCarr label fold after Twitch had braved the January snow to come and see them play in Glasgow.

The band are now well known as being tremendous live performers, at once appearing to help you on the way to clammy nightclub gratification while feverish, dark pop premonitions and murky psychological introspections are brought to life through their lyrics and music.

With the Optimo release of “Now Is The Winter Of Our Discotheque” in 2007, the band stood out of the shadows and are now setting up more permanent camp in clubs all over the world. The rapturously received triple A sided single was completed with Xvectors blistering cover of Jamie Principle’s Chicago classic “Your Love” and their own explosive “Dial All The Nines”, making this 12” a must have for all fans of dirty disco.

“Now is the Winter of our Discotheque” was awarded The Guardian Single of the week, and received 9/10 in Vice Magazine, NME, M8 and Mixmag. The record also turns up on the playlists of just about every underground radio show in Europe as well as extensive radio play in the UK on BBC Radio 1, Radio 6 and XFM. The band are building up their fanbase beyond Scotland and the UK, after their successful 2007 tour with Klaxons, where they played Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France and Ireland. More recently Xvectors rocked the Manicured Noise stage at the very first Connect festival in Scotland and the Vice stage at the Berlin festival.

The band have completed their first album proper for the legendary Blast First Records, which will be released in the late part of the year. They have also provided a track for a tribute compilation album of tracks by the seminal 70's electro pioneers Suicide, for this project XVECTORS will appear on record next to the likes of Bruce Sringsteen, Peaches and Primal Scream.
