Rumbling along on the thick string on a bass guitar, how could I not enjoy the sounds of Vera Lynch. Not long into their musical journey they have just released their debut four track EP Evil Cowboy Surfer Songs which they have used to demonstrate the diversity of sounds, which have a theatrical feel to them and you are given the impression this is a band you need to see live to gain maximum value.
The psychedelic flourishes which the quintet pepper into surf rock provides immense entertainment and it is difficult not to get caught up in the moment. Whilst there are a diversity of ideas travelling through the material, Vera Lynch have avoided making this a difficult space in which to settle. I can totally understand the rationale for releasing the EP with the diversity of sounds in the tracks selected, I look forward to the band more closely define their direction of focus.
As a good introduction to Vera Lynch here is track two on the EP – Fire – a song that leaves the listener feeling better for listening to it and my pick of the release.
