Vista Kicks, originally from Sacramento, had released 3 tracks on their own between 2014 and 2015, which have amassed 3.4 million Spotify streams and over 3.2 million YouTube plays. They've since relocated to Hollywood and in early 2016, released the self produced 6 track collection, 'Chasing Waves', on their own imprint Little Hook Records.
About ‘Chasing Waves’, vocalist Derek Thomas says, “We made it in Sacramento in the presence of our closest friends and family, this first EP is the most honest representation of ourselves currently.”
Chasing Waves (2016) made Apple Music's Featured New Artists page and lived on the homepage of iTunes for four consecutive weeks. They've toured the US with Swim Deep, and now they're touring the West Coast and Southwest this spring with Save Ferris. Vista Kicks' music is a fast blend of good ol' Rock N' Roll, Funk, and Pop. Their shows are electric, they make impossible not to dance and have a great time.
"...Chasing Waves has all the warmth, the fun, and the strife of a young band reeling from the unadulterated struggles of being twenty-somethings just trying to get by in a fucked-up twenty-first century world.." - Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine
