The Sweet Vandals
Hailing from Madrid, Spain, this tight combo offers raw funk and soul with a 60/70’s style sound.
Fronted by the funky female singer Mayka Edjo and backed by four young males, the band understandably draws comparisons with Sharon Jones & the Dap- Kings and Nicole Willis & the Soul
Investigators, as they share the same love for analogy recording and authentic retro-instruments and -amplifiers.
The relentlessly touring band’s eponymous first album contains mostly originals with the occasional cover, like James Brown’s Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag.
