VOLT: Self-titled: CD

Jul 24, 2007

The newest wave has bands like Volt leading the way. And what a perfect fucking name for this band. Post-post-post modern (how stupid are labels?) new wave explosion—1985 time drum machine, stabbing electro-guitars, nasally male-female vocals. But more put into it than just picking the right instruments, dressing up, and freaking out. Volt takes it to the house. They got that solid energy you can feel with a band when they aren’t trying to fit in to a scene but are making music they want to make. On the fence of art punk and just cool, rocking songs, they tear it up with speedy screams and killer, slow detonations. The beauty of robots covered in flesh, picking up instruments.
