This new record shows a band that goes beyond the usual punk and rock influences. Vanguard has got groove, harmony, songs and punch line lyrics. The Sedan Vault never lost its hardcore edge and combines this with a rich sound and song structures. The beat is groovy, the guitars are smart and the arrangements vary from electronics to dark brass and eastern violins. Vocals are melodic while lyrics contain catchy phrases. The latest album Vanguard combines influences from both old school artists like Philip Glass, The Residents with new sounds like The Mars Volta, Battles, Klaxons and Mew, which gives Vanguard international character.
