Their second album LAND is a highly diverse and ambitious piece of art while still carrying the signature sound of the previous work of this guitar-driven band. After their debut-EP Tempdays (2015) and their highly praised longplayer In The Meantime (2016), Land shows how the band has matured in sound and style. The fourteen songs transmit a feeling of sensitivity and openness coming from the nonchalant attitude of the five boys. The variability of VAGUE, that has become emblematic for the bands music, is again a key component on Land, a variability that is fueled by the different styles of the three songwriters and singers (Konstantin Heidler, Gabriel Hyden as well as Simon Dallaserra). The band leave the standard hierarchy between frontman and other bandmembers behind. Members changing instruments and a consensus, that experiments are nothing to be avoided, is where VAGUE’s sound originates.
