AVERKIOU: The New Imperative: 7”

I have no idea what the name of this band means, but they are undeniably catchy. Averkiou play soft and fuzzy indie pop, with subdued vocals, including lots of layered backing vocals. Up-tempo drumming and riffs spiced up with lots of guitar and bass effects are what give Averkiou their sound, leaving plenty of room in all the layers of sound they create for strong hooks that keep your attention focused on the music. This is normally not my kind of music, but I found it enjoyable nonetheless.
