The latest track by The Venus Figurines, “Holiday,” plunges listeners into a hauntingly fast-paced journey through the depths of progressive rock and grunge soundscapes. Drawing inspiration from the likes of QOTSA and Porcupine Tree, this song takes the listener on a dark and ominous musical adventure.
As the band delves into these sinister undertones, they display their undeniable growth and evolution from their formative years in the indie music scene. Since their inception in 2015, The Venus Figurines have consistently pushed boundaries, blending a diverse range of influences, and “Holiday” is a testament to their songwriting prowess.
The mix of the track is a revelation, seamlessly weaving together dynamic harmonies, hypnotic guitar riffs, and a rhythm section that’s as thunderous as it is groovy. Daniel’s lyricism takes center stage, weaving a narrative that adds depth to the song’s experimental stereo field.
In addition, reminiscent of two iconic horror movies – “The Shining” and “The Cabin in the Woods,” Holiday is a bold step forward for The Venus Figurines, showcasing their ability to explore new sonic territories. While also maintaining their signature intensity from their In Transit days. This track off their recent LP ‘Modern Paradigm‘ is a must-listen for anyone seeking gritty vocals, sick guitar riffs, and an innovative musical experience.
