With 13 diverse tracks taken from all throughout their discography, these youngbloods from Reykjavik take their fans on a psychedelic journey of bewitching, guitar-driven classic and blues rock influences. Starting off with the opener of their latest studio album, »Whispers« clearly showcases the band’s musical progression without sacrificing their tried-and-true sonic trademark. »Crystallized« convinces with light blues influences, encircling the listener in enchanting guitar lines and quickly rising to the full extent of its power while evoking anecdotes of retro nostalgia. »On The Run« lures with an acoustic intro building up a catchy melody in the chorus that drives itself deep into the listener’s head.

Tracks like »Psychedelic Mushroom Man«, taken from their self-titled debut album released in 2011, represent a stunning blueprint in The Vintage Caravan’s musical universe with unconventional, skillfully created melodies and Óskar’s gripping, tranquil vocal power. In contrast, bold drumming merges with fast-paced riffs, enveloping an impressive galloping vortex like on the top-notch rock piece »Cocaine Sally« from their second album, while »Expand Your Mind« takes the listener on a splendid journey. The Icelanders close The Monuments Tour with the soft plugging, atmospheric sound of »Clarity« symbolizing the crowning culmination that showcases the full scope of their capabilities – delivering refreshing 70’s-inspired rock with a modern twist!
