New Music: Viper Creek ClubPosted by Nikki Benson
Do you remember that music video shoot that went viral on November 14, 2009? I’m talking about none other than the shoot for Viper Creek Club’s “Eliza;” when word of mouth brought over 250 people to the location and packed them into an oh-so-crammed house. The video for “Eliza” is due out by the end of February, but until then, we have ourselves another occasion to celebrate!
Viper Creek Club has decided to take it out of the studio for the first time; they are taking it to the streets! On January 24, 2010, Seattleites will have the esteemed honor of seeing the very first Viper Creek Club show, if they can beat the line that is. They are going to be playing at High Dive, and judging from their new music, it is going to be an event you aren’t going to want to miss.
Viper Creek Club will be releasing a full length album on April 1, 2010 called Letters, and they have been so kind to allow SSG Music to debut a couple songs exclusively to our readers. In the leading track, “Searching for 19: An Introduction,” the listener is embraced with electronic ambiance at it’s finest. Layers of warm-flowing textures move gently across the listener’s ear as a soft, anxious pianoforte plays uplifting melodies. The marriage of the organic and synthetic textures on this track are ethereal and godlike.
In the song “Doubt,” Viper Creek Club shows off their range of interpretation. There are deep electronic pulses intertwined with the post-rock esque, magically delayed guitar. The vocals tones flow perfectly with the energy and emotion of the song, and the production is top notch.
We could very well be staring the next big thing directly in the face. Don’t miss this show.
