Review of Nico Vega’s Upcoming “Lead to Light”
Los Angeles-based pop/alternative Nico Vega will drop their second full-length studio album on July 22nd, titled Lead to Light. 2009’s self-titled release led them into the limelight with it’s energetic, fiery, attidude-filled, pop/rock sound and turned a lot of heads… somewhat like if you had Shirley Manson and Garbage in a fist fight with Bjork.

I listened to "I Believe". Capsule review: Linda Thompson fronting M83.

I think I'd like this more if it was a bit more raw sounding but I'd not heard of them, so thanks.

They're great. Found them from the linked commercial a couple years ago. Thanks for the reminder.

I thought their first album was a little too unfocused, but god damn she's got a great voice. Here's hoping the next one will zero in on a particular sonic angle and stick with it for a while.

I like them quite a bit, I've been listening to them obsessively for the last couple of months.

They are great! For some reason I remember them from a Borderlands ad
