With their infectious pop-hooks, undeniable talent and social media success these boys are superstars in the making.
The Vamps’ new found position as superstars-in-waiting is a social media fantasy come true. Four teenage musicians from disparate parts of the country hook up via their homemade demos on YouTube, their plan: to upload a series of punkish, acoustic-driven covers of chart-conquering pop hits by the likes of One Direction, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars and release an album of their own arena-shaking anthems. Fifteen million online hits and a major label recording deal later and the UK four piece have become one of the heaviest bleeps on the pop radar.
This is only the beginning, however. Having won over an army of new fans during their support slot with chart heavyweight McFly, the four piece – singer Bradley Will Simpson, guitarist James McVey, drummer Tristan Evans and bassist Connor Ball – have amassed a serious online following. Sure, the band have yet to release an official single, but their YouTube channel has gathered three hundred thousand subscribers; their videos currently receive more traffic than Little Mix, Lawson and Union J, which, given the band have barely reached drinking age, is an example of some serious DIY marketing savvy.
