Orlando’s Own Folk Ensemble “Vestis” Announces New Album

Orlando’s own Vestis ensemble has recently unveiled their eerie new album, “Vestis II,” marking a significant milestone in their musical journey. Led by Michael Felice, who first gained attention with Fond, a formidable band recognized for their raw intensity, Vestis takes listeners on an exploratory journey into the depths of folk music’s experimental fringe, infused with the icy emotions of slowcore.

Felice’s musical evolution from the fiery intensity of Fond to the nuanced soundscape of Vestis reflects a personal journey of balance and introspection. With Vestis, he aimed to create a space where the absence and presence of love intertwine, providing a departure from the relentless energy of his previous endeavor.

Vestis Was Originally A Solo Project

Originally formed as a solo project in 2022, Vestis rapidly expanded into a full-fledged band, featuring Margaret Smartt on keyboards and vocals, Nate Roma on electric guitar and backup vocals, Josh Barbaccia on bass, and Christian Viguie on drums, percussion, and backup vocals. Their latest release, “Vestis II,” represents the culmination of their collective creativity and musical exploration.

In contrast to Fond’s inferno, Vestis delves into the delicate complexities of love songs, embracing a sonic landscape that is both expansive and dramatic. Each track on “Vestis II” is infused with a profound sense of introspection, evoking a range of emotions from serene tranquility to rustic incantations tinged with hidden tension.

One Of Orlando’s Best Musical Acts

With this latest offering, Vestis further solidifies their position as one of Orlando’s most captivating musical acts, captivating audiences with their intense focus and evocative soundscapes. “Vestis II” is now available for streaming on all major platforms, including Spotify, and can also be downloaded from Bandcamp on a name-your-price basis. Experience the spectral beauty of Vestis as they redefine the boundaries of folk music and slowcore emotion.
