Having 7 members can be tricky for any new band. Varying backgrounds, dreams and motives could be tough bring together a cohesive group. Thats why Nashville act Vitek is hoping to avoid any of those hinderances with a simple mission statement: “THINK POSITIVE. FORGIVE EACH OTHER. DANCE.”
With that guiding principal in mind, leader Gabraham Vitek and six other talented musicians crafted an excellent album in Kaleidoscope. Songs like “Skyfall” and “She’s Got The Night” aim for indie pop territory, while elsewhere jazz and blue-eyed soul excel on “Start With A First Name” and “Legs”. The combination of Vitek’s varied vocals, bubbling horn section and paced percussion make for a breakthrough release that should sound even better live.
