Vienna Ditto from Oxford in England the duo of Hatty Taylor and Nigel Firth with their avante-garde rock have passed my sight a few times and now I have been able to find enough music to write a review.
The underscore of velvet and steel resonates of an S&M dungeon with its evocative combination that transfixes the listener. I have been aware of the Vienna Ditto for a year or so and when I received an email about a new release, Ugly which comes out on the 14th October 2013, I was absolutely convinced I had already written a review of the band and was surprised to see that I hadn’t, so let us take a moment to rectify that situation as these two are precisely who should be featured on the Indie Bands Blog stable of websites.
Dulcet vocals are accompanied by evocative music that wrap the listener in an intoxicating fold of velvet which echo’s around the room in a warming embrace, lulling the brain into a sense of safety, before the blind fold is snapped around the eyes and the cold embrace of spreader bars snap into place and suddenly it is the the audience who stand exposed and vulnerable.
Vienna Ditto leave Schmitte Scars seared deep into the brain and I am delighted that I have been able to rectify my omission of a fine band with whom I suggest spending time is part of your life spent well as they add much to the world of music.
