The Vaughns



May 10, 2019

Album Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

Boston Rock Radio

While NJ-based rising stars The Vaughns primarily cite influences ranging from early-70’s rock to 90’s alternative, many different sounds and sprinklings of flavors from the indie and pop genres are present on the band’s first full-length, FOMO. Anna Lies (vocals, guitar), David Cacciatore (guitar, backing vocals), Ryan Kenter (drums), and Tom Losito (bass, backing vocals) have already received quite a bit of buzz from both local and national media outlets, and they’ve been working non-stop since their last release (2015’s EP tomfoolery) to craft an album that reflects their growth as musicians and as people.


FOMO is a dynamic, eclectic album with clever, honest lyrics, each song telling its own story about the struggles of growing up. The opening track, “Learning to Surf,” sets the smooth, groovy tone for the remainder of the album. Lies’ vocals are playful and fun; she proves herself to be an incredibly versatile artist on tracks such as “TV” and “Bring Your Kids to Work Day,” where she shows off both the rock and pop sides of her voice. The latter also features an impressive guitar solo, a welcome burst of soulful rock ‘n roll. Tom Losito’s bass is prominent in just about every song, but particularly “Stiff,” one of the album’s longest and strongest tracks.


Riding the high of FOMO’s instant success, The Vaughns will be returning to the stage this summer to bask in the love of their local scene, and hitting stops in Vermont and New York as well. Be sure to catch them on this mini-tour if you can. This album’s love-at-first-listen effect is guaranteed to carry over to the band’s live performances.
