VIVIAN GIRLS: Wild Eyes: 7”

Aug 21, 2008

Not even thirty seconds into the first track, I swore that this Brooklyn band of girls listened to a lot of Black Tambourine. Hell, I thought they could be Black Tambourine. They have soft, female vocals that glide perfectly with their blend of minimalist shoegaze and twee pop on the title track. The b-side is more minimalist shoegaze stuff, but more ambient and less pop than the a-side. Seriously, I don’t know what else to say except that I think it’s rad that I finally heard a band that has a distinct Black Tambourine influence. I recommend keeping your ear to the ground for more from this band.
