ViceVersa – Move – Single Review

On the 29th the US alt-rock trio ViceVersa released the single Move.

ViceVersa - Move


This is the third occasion in which ViceVersa have featured and each time they have pulled up to the desk with a slightly different toolkit.

Move, which is available on bandcamp, finds them with a lighter texturing, most noticeably missing are the dirty twisted guitar and grumbling bass which have given space for them to deliver a song that extends an invitation to join on the dancefloor and sway with the groove.

Their eye on social inequities is not lost however, with the intention of Move being to offer a song in which the grind of life can be cast aside for the just under three and a half-minutes of its duration.

Their début EP summer in december surfaced this month.

A five track release (available on bandcamp) that minds the listener of an evening on the shoreline as temperature drops, coinciding with a tide rapidly receding over flats of sand with a sense of sadness that the day is drawing to close, only to find ones toes sinking in to warm wet sand and rather than falling in to despair – finding solace and pleasure in past memories.

My pick of the release being the second – it’s fine (i’m fine).

Karabas Barabas

Whilst delivering music that slices acerbic perspective in a good-humoured wrapping, the music itself is extremely well composed and delivered – resultingly the listener finds themselves fully engaged by the layering, timing and variety of instrumentation deployed.

Their most recent LP Sex With The Devil (available on bandcamp) is a ten track release which will find the audience unwilling to be interrupted as Karabas Barabas take them on a whimsical ride of trippy soundscape.

My pick of the release being the second Lahey.

Band Of The Month – December 2017 – Editors’ Choice

The final selection of 2017 for the Editors’ Choice for Band Of The Month.

Before the year closes I would once again like to thank all the musicians from around the world for their endeavours, whether they make contact, are ever featured or not – you do make the world a brighter place, thank you. Somehow I feel the video shot live in pouring rain with fans enjoying the music in this the Editors’ selection for this month extrapolates this thought far better than text can ever express…
