Vendettas – ‘Running’ (mp3)

Listen to

Vendettas combines the very hip talents of Peter Mayes of PNAU and John Hardy of Soundworks Studios, who recently produced the new records by Van She, The Valentinos and Children Collide. I’m very selective when it comes to listening tunes from the so called ‘new rave’ movement, this song though makes the cut. Singer Larissa’s voice reminds me of a lot of mid 80s pseudo-club/rock tunes which I’m not a particularly big fan of but the chorus is just too catchy to ignore. Played at full club volume this song can be easily dropped to most hipster DJs setlist. Rumours are they already had a deal with a major label in Australia. They’ve got a few gigs coming up in Sydney but I’ve yet to meet someone who’s seen them live, though they will play a lot more support slots in the next few months.

    Finally gave this a good listen today. I really like it. It’s totally 80’s, but i don’t mind that. I’ll be trying to make their gig at Spectrum this week.

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article Vendettas, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.
