Billy Vincent are set to release their new EP, ‘Once On The Grand Union’ through Something Nothing Records on October 17th – another set of zealous tracks that showcase a seamless progression from the rousing compositions of previous EP, ‘King Island Coyote’.
Fronted by long time compatriots and best friends, Billy Barratt and David Vincent, the band have crafted a collection of songs that are as lyrically stimulating as they are musically.
From the sinister tale of ‘St. Catherine’s Oratory’ and its relentless chant of “looking for the monsters from under my bed”, through to the sprightly feel good message of ‘Through Stations For Trains’, Billy Vincent demonstrate a flair for creating diverse numbers, yet still keeping their own inimitable style and sound.
The latter half of ‘Once On The Grand Union’ sees the band unveil their softer side with a yarn of torturous love with ‘Young Hearts’, a side that stands out against the infectiously jaunty ‘Truly’ and its rousing sing-along chorus.

Passion for their craft is a trait that many artists claim, but with new EP, ‘King Island Coyote’, released on April 11th Billy Vincent prove that for them it is at the core of the music.
“For us it’s all about passion. If you don’t put your heart and soul into it, it’s pointless. And we give it everything we’ve got,” affirms co-singer and songwriter David Vincent.
Together with long-time cohort and best mate Bill Barratt, with whom he began playing music from their time at infant’s school, Billy Vincent create visceral melodies that veer from the heart wrenching to the raucous.
‘King Island Coyote’ perfectly showcases Billy Vincent’s musicianship and lyricism in its four captivating tracks. From the poignant ‘Prairie Wolves’ to the tenacious ‘They Break Bones’ contrasting with the mournful ‘Trouble Never Comes Alone’ and the deceptively sprightly ‘Tubes/Wires’, their latest EP is the ideal introduction to the band’s distinctive sound, dubbed by the band themselves as ‘dirty folk’.
