Seattle group Versing will release their Hardly Art full-length debut, 10000 on the 3rd May.
Taking cues from bands as diverse as Wire, The Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine, it is a record that fuses lustrous noise and ebullient melody. The band’s first offering, Tethered, is a sprawling, Daydream Nation-esque anthem with plenty of rhythm, dissonance and surging, distorted guitars. Frontman Daniel Salas explains that it’s “about how people are tied together,” figuratively. “It’s a reminder of the interconnectedness of humans, to people who make excuses for not doing the right thing” for the greater good of humanity.
