Soaked by Spells of Vertigo

sovThis is a big noise from just three people.

Soaked is the new EP from Spells of Vertigo.  They mix the bass-heavy seductive side of harder rock acts like Tool and Deftones with a hint of more 90s grunge.

EP centrepiece, “Baby Born (With No Name)” takes in all of these sounds, opening with a discordant guitar (think Sonic Youth) simmering into a frenzied ending reminiscent of early Smashing Pumpkins.

The vocals of Keegan Powell are not always as wild though and strike a nice balance of different smoky tones to suit the mood throughout the EP.

Of the other songs on Soaked, finale “Clover” tries to do a lot in nearly 6 minutes with several sections building and teasing whereas opener “Telegenic” is a shorter blast and will remind you of several bands you forgot you liked.

As a lover of music, cats and chocolate it was inevitable that Paul would end up writing for us. A tireless singer/songwriter from the UK with a tiresome number of music projects, his worrying knowledge of the 80s and the evolution of crisps and confectionery (or chips and candy for our US readers) has seen him both gain jobs and lose friends.
