Viva Voce

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Noticing that a band is co-headlining a tour with another that has recently released one of the better rock albums of the year really sticks out as being impressive. Not so much Mötley Crüe and Aerosmith here, but a whole lot of Silversun Pickups and Viva Voce. This duo, Kevin and Anita Robinson, confirms that 2006 is in fact the year of the married bands, following releases from the likes of The Submarines. Viva Voce have a way about their simplistic songs, finding that they are completely intent on sticking with a few chords that suit them so. The band’s recent video for “From The Devil Himself” visually flirts with peaceful protest theme while exuding slightly washed vocals and hand clap glamour. As previously mentioned you can check the duo out on tour.
