ARTIST / BAND: VIVA VOCE
SONG (MP3): WE DO NOT FUCK AROUND
ALBUM: Get Yr Blood Sucked Out
FILE UNDER: Indie / Psychedelic / Classic Rock
INFO: Kevin and Anita Robinson formed Viva Voce (pronounced VEE-vah-VOH-chay, Italian for "by word of mouth") in their native Muscle Shoals, AL, in 1998. Heeding the call of the woods, they relocated to Portland, OR, in 2001.
Fuzzed out psych excursions, eminently infectious melodies, hand-clap break downs, and star-shine vocal harmonizing (often all in the same song) belie an underlying deftness of arrangement and composition. Mining everything from down tempo electronica and R&B to post-rock and dream pop, Viva Voce weave together a sonic tapestry of shifting tones and textures that both continually challenges and stimulates the listener while holding them blissfully entranced.
