Viola Beach: the worst possible way to hear of a band

I had never heard of Viola Beach before today. They were an indie-pop band from Warrington, United Kingdom. The entire band, consisting of Kris Leonard, 20, River Reeves, 19, Jack Dakin, 19, Tomas Lowe, 27, and their manager Craig Tarry, 33, died after their car plummeted 80 feet off a highway bridge in the early hours of Saturday in Sodertalje near Stockholm, Sweden.

The band has got a great sound and cool tunes. It is truly a sad thing for their music to gain such widespread recognition from such tragedy. Rest in peace.
