Viola Beach is the posthumous album from Warrington’s Viola Beach. Last year I had the pleasure of witnessing the four-piece perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds Festival and was blown away by their vibrant display of great indie rock. Their singles ‘Swings & Waterslides’ and ‘Boys That Sing’ provided all of the yearning lyrics, sunny instrumentals and youthful enthusiasm to make it easy to fall in love with them. Unfortunately a tragic accident during the band’s first overseas tour resulted in their careers ending before they truly had a chance to get started. However, thanks to the bands’ families they were able to get their debut album released to the world, which reached the #1 spot here in the UK.
