Vukovi have released their new single Violent Minds, a taste of their forthcoming sophomore album Fall Better.
“First track on the album, favourite track on the album for me. It’s also one of the darkest songs we’ve ever written lyrically,” explains frontwoman Janine Shilstone. “It has a deliberate schizophrenic vocal production over a rock Rumba beat and stupidly heavy guitars which sounds fucking terrible, but it really works so beautifully. This one for me is the daddy track (whatever that means).”
“The anime voice/hook you can hear is from a super limited-edition guitar pedal called Miku Stomp,” adds guitarist Hamish Reilly. “You can programme it to say phrases in Japanese through the guitar (wizardry shit, right?)”
Violent Minds is available to stream or purchase HERE.
