Vaults - 'Caught In Still Life'

8/10

For all intensive purposes, the Vaults debut album should have come out a long time ago. Since 2014, the band have found themselves as a major talking point in the British music scene. From soundtracking films like 50 Shades Of Grey to, more recently, the John Lewis Christmas advert, the trio have amassed a huge cult following, and now we finally get to hear all of their great work in one place.

Their debut album 'Caught In Still Life' plays like a best-of in their career so far. Filled with many of the singles and tracks that made up their initial EP releases, this new full-length aims to display the breadth and ambition that they have shown up until now. But rather than coming across like a bundled-together record, where any old track is thrown into the mix for padding, 'Caught In Still Life' gives us a snapshot of the band's very cohesive sound until now, as they deliver one brilliantly written track after another.

While it may have seemed like a rushed decision to get this out before Christmas, it was clearly a long time coming for a group that has been leaving us in awe for so long as it is. A surefire stocking-filler for that cool mum in your life.
