Vintage Trouble Trying To Bring Back Vintage Sound

(Radio.com) Vintage Trouble want to bring people back to a time when rhythm and blues ruled the scene and the dance floor was full of shakers.

Having just finished a performance at Coachella and gearing up for a summer tour with the Who before opening for the Rolling Stones at Hyde Park this July, the Los Angeles band is bringing their vintage soul flavor to the masses.

"We listen to so much old music for inspiration and then we just try to give it who we are today to make it a little more contemporary," frontman Ty Taylor told Radio.com.

"There's so many dance songs from back in the day and nowadays that's not the case. A lot of times people consider the best songs of the times to be the ones where you have to turn your head to the side and really listen and really get into it but the world is so heavy now that maybe all we need to do is just shake."

Inspiration comes to Vintage Trouble in various forms, whether it be from older music or their own personal lives. One track, "Nancy Lee," specifically came about as an ode to Taylor's mother.

"'Nancy Lee' is my mother and it's the story of when my mom and dad first met," he said. "I did it lyrically from my dad's point of view because he was more of a meat and potatoes kind of person, he wasn't someone that would ever write a song. I thought it would be great for my mom to hear a song about her. I thought it'd be better to have it be of a time when my mom and dad fell in love." more.
