Formed in late 2017, The Vitriots are a refreshingly addictive garage rock band from Inner-Sydney. Inspired by acts such as The White Stripes, Nirvana and Oasis, The Vitriots’ sound comes from a mashing together of tongue in cheek lyrics, bumping bass riffs and melodically-brash guitars. The end result is a volt to the system, with inescapable hooks and choruses that you'll have stuck in your head for weeks to come.
A follow up to their debut single (Long Way Down), ‘Regret’ is a raucous garage track that will have listeners wanting to drop everything and dance on the spot sporadically. The song comes from an incident that Brandon (Lead Vocals) saw one night in Sydney. “I was out having some drinks, a healthy amount you know, of course, and this group of guys wouldn’t leave this girl alone, she was just trying to dance with her friends and it was bugging the shit of me that these guys wouldn’t let her do her own thing.”
The Vitriots worked with Dylan Adams (DMA’s, West Thebarton, Sticky Fingers, Skegss) again on this one, blasting an infectious guitar melody through thrashing drums building tension into a rowdy anthemic chorus. The song says it all, “I came here just so I can fuckin’ dance” - and dance we will.
