Vera Vera – “The Future, Forever”

vera vera

“The Future, Forever” creatively incorporates versatile live percussion with both entrancing synth arpeggios and post-punk guitar crawls, resulting in a striking sound that Atlanta-based rockers Vera Vera should be proud of. I’m particularly fond of the verses around 01:30 where these electronic and rock-driven elements combine beautifully over the wonderfully emotive vocals, which remind me of several greatly idiosyncratic vocalists like Brian Molko and Robert Smith. Their synth/post-rock collision results in a sound that’s grimy yet effervescent, with those two contrasting characteristics merging for surprising cohesion.

Check out another one of their tracks, “No Control VV”, below:
