Over the course of the past five years, The Vandelles have come to command their own corner in the local music scene. They occupy a territory that covers the Pulp-rock stylings of early Jesus and Mary Chain colliding with a sandy island of slinky hula riffs and harmonic dissonance. The bands roots are in New Brunswick, where they formed during their college years from the members of two separate bands. Soon after, they found themselves playing alongside psychedelic powerhouse The Black Angels. Although now Brooklyn bases, The Vandelles emote California style to the max, like a beached orphan of X, making their eastern seaboard ties all the more remarkable. The Vandelles were a headlining act at Iceland Airwaves 2010 and opened for The Cult at one of the headlining shows of SXSW, and in September theband found themselves touring with the Jesus and Mary Chain to sold out crowds with both girls singing “Just Like Honey” on different nights of the tour.
