Vamoosery – ‘Moving Forward’

Hailing from Coventry, UK, female-fronted alt-rockers Vamoosery compel with a range of inspirational, expressive successes on their new album Moving Forward. Raucous rock, immediate pop, and ruminating folk intermingle with satiating qualities throughout this memorable release.

The rock immediacy of “Pieces” enamors with the peppy vocal introduction and bass-y charisma, playing like a motivational anthem. “The pieces will come together,” refrain compels alongside revved-up guitar tones, following verses that plead to ignore self-doubt and fear. The heavy, dexterous guitar tones that bridge into the ensuing verses show an ardent engrossment; the track is a stellar showcase of the act’s rousing rock chops.

Elsewhere, “Solid Ground” is exemplary of their eclectic reach. A ruminating initial folk sound, led by fluttering acoustics, expands seamlessly into a soaring vocal inflection and thunderous guitar undercurrents. “I am surrounded by darkness, it keeps on weighing me down,” complements the more ferocious tonal assumption, emitting a search for hope with cathartic immersion. Moving Forward continuously engages with a range of hooky, inspirational tracks that span from contemplative folk to ardent rock theatrics.

“Pieces” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2023’ Spotify playlist.
