Vagabond: "Everyone thinks we're gonna be Girls Aloud with guitars"
Posted at 11:29 AM, 17 August 2009 -

Vagabond, the first band being launched by Xenomania, release their debut album today. The band is seen as an odd offering from Xenomania, given their background in pure, shameless pop, and their long-term association with a group like Girls Aloud.

Vagabond guitarist Luke Fitton told The Telegraph: «Everyone thinks we’re gonna be Girls Aloud with guitars, but we’re a proper band. We just didn’t get together at school, we got together in Brian’s house.»

Frontman Alex Vargas went to the Xenomania studios for a songwriting session and wound up forming Vagabond with other young musicians working around the house. Brian Higgins said of Vargas: «Alex is a stunning songwriter, and I want to nurture that because he is going to take us to places we wouldn’t otherwise go».

Vargas (vocals, acoustic guitar), Stephen Carter (backing vocals, guitar), Luke Fitton (backing vocals, guitar), Sam Odiwe (bass) and Karl Penney (drums) are now putting out their debut album, You Don't Know The Half Of It.

To celebrate the release of the album, Vagabond will be doing an in-store signing and performance tomorrow (Tuesday, 18th August) in London. You can catch them at Pure Groove (6-7 West Smithfield, London, EC1A 9JX) - arrive at 6pm for a 7pm performance. There'll also be Vagabond merchandise to buy at the venue.

Vagabond recently took over the website FemaleFirst. They reviewed albums and singles by Calvin Harris, VV Brown, Just Jack and Preston and interviewed Team Waterpolo and label mates Mini Viva.

In their series of acoustic covers, they've recorded a version of Marvin Gaye's classic, "What’s Going On" - watch it here.

Vagabond's performance at the iTunes Festival is now available to buy for £1.99. The EP includes five songs: "Don't Wanna Run No More", "Drifting", "Sweat", "Ladele" and "I've Been Wanting You". Click here to buy.
