Vanden – ‘This Time’

Listen to

Don’t be fooled – there’s a lot more work behind Vanden that one might suspect on first glance.  Originally, this Melbourne 5-piece started life as but after member and direction changes, a new moniker surfaced.

They released their debut EP towards the end of last year entitled Victims which was produced by the super-cool Forrester Savell, who seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to working with rock bands lately (Karnivool? Dead Letter Circus? Yeah…) There’s definitely a bit of Glassjaw influence in Vanden (if the dude in the red shirt didn’t give it away already), and Victims an EP which is hook-laden from start to finish.  Having never seen these guys live, I can only guess that their live show would be one ferocious rock onslaught.  They’re doing a run of shows in May, so if you’re in Victoria, get along and tell me what they’re like.  I hear there’s guitar acrobatics too, and probably amps turned up to 11.

Anyway, ‘This Time’ is a pretty killer track, my fave off their EP, so enjoy rock-nerds.
