Violent Soho are an Australian band who come at you with attitude and panache. Their new album ‘Everything is A-Ok’ drips with grungy slacker snarl and bite
“Shelf Life” gives off the feel of Nirvana and QOTSA. “Sleep Year” has a great atonal build up and introduces those snotty, bratty vocals that are a key and captivating feature of this record. Plus it has a great riff. “Pick It Up Again” starts with some strong guitar and builds up to be one of the strongest songs here. It’s great to hear this kind of attitude.
“Canada” has a more panoramic feel soundwise and is a touch more melodic than other tracks. There’s a definite nod to the Foos here. That’s not a bad thing at all.
“Lying On The Floor” has a lovely ascending riff which makes this song another contender for the song of the album. I imagine that Violent Soho are an amazing live band and on the strength of these excellent songs I for one will be in line to see them in action when they can hit the UK. This record is packed full of skip fulls of attitude and also makes a great sound to jump around to so push back the furniture and get some Violent Soho blasting through your speakers
