Hooked the first second I heard that synth arpeggiator going from the start of the track. It only got better as the track carries on. It has a gothic vibe mixed with synth pop from the 80’s and modern synth wave. The vocals seduce and pull the listener in till it reaches a crescendo in the chorus with several vocals singing in harmony. This track is for fans of Grimes and Purity Ring.
Moody rock with a solid nod to 80’s goth-punk. Both of these tracks from the Viet Cong’s soon to be released full length (out January 20th) sound solid.
This track launches off at the chorus, so give it till that moment when all the elements come in for the lift off. It’s a bit Gothic and dark but I like that brooding bassline when it kicks in.
