living textures (2019/BLACK WATER)

NEW-WAVE/POST-PUNK. Portland trio, VICE DEVICE, have honed a distinct blend of live electronic rhythm, layers of synth that range from lush to searing with bass that gnashes at the edges, primal and shattered. Dual vocalists explore moods that are eerily charged as well as hauntingly somber, akin to both DEPECHE MODE and BIKINI KILL. After a handful of well received releases, the group delivers on their long awaited debut LP, "living textures". The album features 8 tracks that evoke the spirit of both early '80s Berlin and NYC underground music. Inspired by the electronic punk aggression of X-MAL DEUTSCHLAND and SUICIDE. "living textures" is both refreshing and familiar.
