Jake Ward and Marie A. Uhler are Eureka California. For a two-piece, Ward’s fuzz guitar and Uhler’s frenetic drumming fill up the space in my ears. Their sound time warps me to the ‘90s, to self-referential post-grunge pop rock. The snarky lyrics (“The American Dream can finally die with me / And my Liberal Arts diploma”) evoke Harvey Danger and the clenched-fist choruses are lifted right out of High/Low-era Nada Surf. College-educated and disenchanted, Versusis at once familiar, fresh, and relatable.
