A cassette tape you need a pencil to respool. A pair of beat up sneakers that you'll never get rid of.
It's raw, nostalgic, energetic and rich in melody and rhythm. It's Rock N Roll inspired from the past but living in the present.Vintage Automatic is an English-American rock n' roll monster created right in the heart of Los Angeles. Despite their birth place, the band could be described as anything but angelic, with fire, passion and notes of sex strung within each of their tunes. Their sound demonstrates an eclectic style ranging from punk, uk garage, 60s/70s rock to surf rock. Not lacking inspiration some of their influences span from America and UK (The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Kinks, Pink Floyd, Queen, Arctic Monkeys, Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Strokes, Red Hot Chili Peppers) to African psychedelic rock n roll and afro beats from Nigeria and Zambia's zamrock scene (Question Mark, the Peace, Ofeg, Witches, etc). Front man Nzephany “The Zephyr” Uzoka, who's Nigerian and English background builds the foundation for their unique style, found the sharp and chord-biting bassist, Daniel “Dannyboy” Carrillo. They dragged in the energy-demon and absolute brilliant drummer, Chris “The Beast” Scanlan who made an impression during early studio sessions, and it wasn't long until Daniel's brother, Tomas “Esquire” Carrillo caught the fever and added his undeniable talent for guitar, turning the trio into a powerful quartet. Vintage Automatic was born.
