VACANT FEVER give us quite a characteristic effort with their first 7″. The single comes nearly a year later after their debut LP “Heparin & Saline” and appears to be self released by the band in an edition of 500.
Vacant Fever take on a menacing form of post-punk through their five track 7″. Their sound features both traditional instrumentation paired with some moody electronics, making for a memorable and well-balanced sound that is definitely challenging. Pulsing rhythms and sweeping guitar waves exemplify their sound accurately in a song like “Like It or Not”, which is a short and concentrated snapshot of Vacant Fever’s curiously grasping sound. Following that is “Don’t Look Down” which helps further prove this bands menacing, post-punk attitude. The track drips with a dark and twisted energy driven by grungy guitar shards and bruising, tom-heavy drumming, hereby leaving us hungry for any future releases from the band. These foreboding vibes are similar to the s/t track “Kill Kill Kill” as well, which you can hear below. If you like what you hear, go and snag a 7″ from the band right now!
