Now this is what I’m talking about! Baritone vocals, dark subject matter, thundering rhythm section, and strings. Strings! Strings as an integral part of the music.
If you’re not already acquainted with The Vultures, say hello. If you are already acquainted, say welcome back.
Suicide is the first release from their second album Three Mothers Part 2, which will see the light of day on April 14th via Ciao Ketchup.
The Vultures are a six-piece with members from London, Montreal, Taipei, Valencia, and Newcastle; the members being Benjamin Etchells (vocals), Justine Cartier (bass), Joan Gadea (drums), Hannah Marchal (cello), Andy Tsao (violin) and Kate Coggins (viola).
One of the things I love about Suicide is how they’ve managed to turn a dark and macabre subject into a groovy, melodic, even uplifting at times, track that is as infectious as it is something we will all think of at some time.
It’s not a laugh, but it is bloody good.
