London-based Vienna Ditto are a true example of what the current music scene urgently needs. It needs for somebody to grab it by the horns and shake it up somewhat. A far cry away from the pretentious shoegaze, indy-pop smush that is populating the world of music press in the UK, the band are back with a BANG and a new single which continues in the trend of doing something out-of-the-ordinary.
Slightly reminiscent of Portishead and Jack Nitzsche, the new single Feeling Good is an intriguing mix of starkly contrasting styles, which aims straight for the jugular with its haunting chorus and upbeat rockabilly riffs. This blend of psychedelic rock and electronica paired with Hatty’s smoky vocals has created a disorientating, enthralling and captivating sound which is truly unique to Vienna Ditto. Production-wise there is a subtlety of Lamb with the creative characteristics of recent big hitters The Knife and the guts of PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake.
