EDITORS’ NOTES

A cover of Randy Crawford’s “One Day I’ll Fly Away” flung Vaults into the British national consciousness when it soundtracked a viral Christmas TV ad for retailer John Lewis. It will be their own songwriting prowess–and vocalist Blythe Pepino’s emotional eloquence–that keeps them there though. Decorated with gospel touches “Midnight River” is an infectious cocktail of doubt and optimism, while “Hurricane” and “Overcome” typify their gift for heavy-hearted slow-burners blessed with big hooks and just enough drama.
