Mark Vennis & Different Place have a fantastic approach to music. Live, loud and human-there is a lot to appreciate in the songs that they construct so well. You’ll be absorbed in their beautiful melodies in no time. Enjoy the cinematic drama of their latest single, Wild Suburban Boy.
The style is a snippet of indie rock, with some classic rock roots. The opening is some open string magic, something that Ringo Starr would put out in his album. The jive is evident, and you can feel each instrument with the lyrics. Bass comes in late to create this beautiful undercurrent, something you witness in the best of rock. It is like you’re listening to a dynamic physical kaleidoscope, a roller coaster ride, truly. You’ll bring the dancing shoes to the floor, for the groove promises something more.
I really enjoyed how the tones were as well, especially when the memorable guitar solo came in. Switch from distorted bluesy to the cleaner pop sound is really capitalized on, and you can immediately click to the sound with them. Mark Vennis & Different Place are the kind of band that want you to appreciate the poetry and legacy of live music. No indie band can do it while having so much fun.
Singles like Cut Me Loose and More in Sorrow by the band has been their cornerstone in songwriting. They are always able to organically shift the style and sub-genre, a great boon for musicians. This would be a great track in the 2014 epic Boyhood. There are specific scenes in the suburbs that would be perfect for this track. Listen to Mark Vennis & Different Place with us here!
