Viscula – “Seagulls”


A band formed in Lutsk, Ukraine and presently based in London, Viscula unveil a haunting instrumental rock sound throughout their new track “Seagulls.” The track releases alongside a similarly atmospheric music video (above), directed by Alex White (The Electric Soft Parade) and featuring the work of photographer and cameraman Paul Miller.

The moody shots of an abandoned antique shop (‘LOT ONE TEN’ located in Walthamstow) pairs aptly with the track’s nocturnal guitar tones and eerie synth effects. The first single from Viscula’s instrumental album IV, released last December. Also featuring acclaimed Soviet bassist Alexander Titov (Kino, Aquarium), the release infuses psychedelia and post-rock with an engrossing pull.

“Seagulls” represents the album enjoyably, providing ample mystique in the reflectively escalating guitar tones and otherworldly synth tones. Fans of atmospheric instrumental rock should seek out Viscula’s IV, ASAP.
