|Victory Kicks create driving, melodic and atmospheric guitar music, drawing inspiration from the likes of Spoon, The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Wilco, The National, Death Cab for Cutie, Stephen Malkmus, Guided by Voices, The Walkmen, British Sea Power and Kraftwerk.|
The band began in early 2013 as a home recording project featuring London-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Sibley. Early EPs and albums of catchy lo-fi indie rock gained favourable critical attention and radio play in both the UK and the US and the band became known for releasing an almost continuous stream of home recorded alt-rock barely pausing between releases.
Having begun as a solo project, recording and releasing records out of John’s living room, over the years Victory Kicks has come to sit somewhere between that and a collaborative band with regular contributions from a rotating cast of friends and members of other London based acts. These include singer/songwriter and guitarist Sam Beard and members of London-based bands The Young Flood, WEM and Plastic Barricades.
