The title track and first of the seven on the album (which is available on bandcamp) has been made available in advance of the release.




Ticks has a lighter pitch than much of the music featured over the past three years with a more jocular bounce, but, that does need to be taken in context with the output of Vienna Ditto as this not a track you will find yourself skipping around the barbecue with a maniacal grin on your face.

Vienna Ditto have introduced some fresh ideas to the music with a less claustrophobic feel, whilst retaining their signature sound and the immediately identifiable voice of Hatty will ensure established followers will find what they recognise, whilst having the opportunity to hear something slightly different.

Vienna Ditto – Hammer And A Nail – Single Review

It was back in September 2013 that I first wrote about the avant-garde rock English duo Vienna Ditto. Plans are afoot for a début LP – due on the 4th May. In advance the single Hammer And A Nail.

Set for release on the 23rd February, with fortune as darkness falls and temperatures drop as I type I found Hammer And A Nail in my in-box.


The track takes a sultry Marriconne twist as a wurlitzer glides around the smoky vocals, beguiling the listener to cuddle up close and enjoy the unctuous oily massage. One is minded of a more subtle version of Déshabillez Moi by Juliette Gréco and how could that not warm up a winters evening?

Having featured the Feeling Good back in June – also planned to be on the album, which remains un-named, what I can be sure of – is – that it will be well worth grabbing hold of with outstretched arms when it does arrive. I am led to believe masters are expected to be completed in the next few weeks and I have been assured of early ears and will certainly let you know my thoughts.

Vienna Ditto – Ugly – EP Review

Vienna Ditto have a new EP – Ugly – coming out on CD through Ubiquity Project Records on the 14th October.

Vienna Ditto - Ugly  - EP Review

The EP comes in various iterations from a three track to seven on the CD version which has four bonus live recordings. I will concentrate on the three compositions all formats will offer.

With each piece of work running at around the four and a half minute mark, the listener has plenty of time to immerse themselves in the evocative music that is Vienna Ditto. Opening with the title track which has a background sound of a boot being pulled out of warm sticky mud  and this sets up the EP for a slip slide into the deeper recesses of the mind.

By Way Of An Apology is an atmospheric laden piece in which Hatty Taylor seduces the audience with a sultry vocal whilst the instrumentation wraps the ears in a shadowy embrace and the over all effect draws the mind to paint images of dark and fog shrouded gothic buildings. My pick of the release.

Sadly Stop is just that – the end of the standard EP and once again the music is visually stimulating with its circular repetitions. It would be very easy to conceive of any of Ugly appearing on a French Arthouse film. Fortunately they aren’t so the audience is able to find a much easier route to access while they create their own film score in their head.

I look forward to future releases by the duo who make up Vienna Ditto.

Ugly – EP is available on iTunes*
