The Vines

The Vines greet the world with the kind of blinking, wide eyed enthusiasm of a band just out of the garage band when in reality they experienced an accelerated career, lived out very publicly in a whirlwind of brilliant pop records, legendary gigs and gruelling world tours. In six short years released four albums: Highly Evolved,  Winning Days, Vision Valley and Melodia. Melodia features fourteen new songs, including new single He’s A Rocker.
