The Vaughns are an American rock band that is from New Jersey.

About[edit]

The Vaughns are a four-piece indie pop rock band from Springfield Township, New Jersey, that formed in 2014.[1] The band attended high school together, and at the suggestion of their friends, began rehearsing together.[2] The Vaughns play a blend of garage rock and blues, and cite musical influence from the Beatles, Arctic Monkeys, Sublime and Nirvana.[2][3] They draw comparison to the music of Courtney Barnett, the White Stripes, and Alabama Shakes.[4][3] They released an EP, entitled The Vaughns, in August 2014.[4]

Sniffling Indie Kids[edit]

Their second EP tomfoolery was released by Sniffling Indie Kids on 24 October 2015, and the band notes "the main goal in recording tomfoolery was to capture the raw live sound."[4] In 2016, the Vaughns' music was featured on the MTV show, Brothers Green Eat, and on the syndicated radio show, Little Steven's Underground Garage.[5] That year, they also contributed to the Third Annual 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge, with the track "Vamos."[6]

The single "Santa Cruz" was released in 2017. In an interview with Consequence of Sound, Lies explains "when writing the song I was thinking about the contradictions between love as we see it in real life, and love as depicted in movies[;] when I look at great couples in my life I see something much lighter [and] so the thought was that maybe what we strive for in love should be more like that: consistent and warm."[7] In 2018, the song "Coffee Sundae" was released, which is described as a "whimsical track [that] chronicles dealing with a romantic partner who is still in contact with their ex."[8] The Vaughns performed at the North Jersey Indie Rock Festival, on 6 October 2018.[9]
