For all the sounds to come out of Surrey, England I wasn’t expecting this.
Versonic have recently released their blinding new single Follow from their 2018 album Brand New Man, with their release they have audibly set themselves apart from every other Indie outfit on the UK scene to date. Mainly due to the absolutely cataclysmic guitar riffs which add so much meat to the track you’re going to wish you had some gravy to dip it into. Then there’s the viscerally quiescent vocals by the award-winning songwriter Stephen Connor. You won’t struggle to see how he picked up such awards as you listen to his latest creation Follow unfold. How they managed to pack that much progression into a three minute track is still baffling. What starts out as a typically sweet indie track seamlessly explodes into an instrumental segment that you’d swear was part of a Prog Rock anthem. When the concluding chorus really kicks in it carries so much bounce it’s almost dizzying. I seriously can’t rate these guys enough. I’m putting money on it now. They’re going to be huge.
