Brand Violet – Voodoo

The Brighton based electro-pop-punk foursome Brand Violet return with another moody, bass driven and theatrical single. ‘Voodoo’ has the brooding bass of psychobilly, baby-doll vocals and backing vocals akin to 1950 American news bulletin; in addition to a chorus that reminds me of ‘Livin La Vida Loca’, only slowed down a little.

Also included are equally dramatic, but more romantic in tone, ‘Vet’ and the Thumpermonkey remix of ‘School Disco’. The latter brings freaky space-age sound effects and a reggae beat into the mix, which is not at all unpleasant.
