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