“They’ll Never Destroy Us” is a latest single from Vic Moon, a newly formed duo comprising Anna Schulze and Ryan Marshall. Both accomplished solo artists, their project grips here with a driving sound led by a deep, commanding vocal presence and pulsing synth/rhythm interplay.
The initially morose vocal feeling reminds fondly of The National. Percussive click-clacks and ominous synth-y swell adds grippingly to the soundscape, with the “never destroy,” segment stirring with the vigor-full guitar tones. The “this story won’t end,” refrain consumes further, with the spacious “they’ll never destroy us,” punctuation evolving into a raucously enjoyably guitar stomp. “They’ll Never Destroy Us” is an evolving, melodic success from Vic Moon.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2023’ Spotify playlist.
