Just what can you expect from a track which comes off an album titled ‘morbid’? Whatever your preconceptions of the up and coming artist Vidaus’ latest single DEAF, throw them out of the window right now.
The ambiently progressive track doesn’t seem to fit in any genre you’d like to squeeze the sound into. With elements of Indie, Shoegaze and Folk, the guitar-driven arrangements are incomparable to any other track you’ve checked out this year (possibly ever). In each chord progression of the guitar you’ll find notes of sweet and tentative longing which will grip you for long after the track has faded out. Every single track from the album gives me the Post Punk chills. And if that isn’t a good enough reason to check it out, then I don’t know what is.
