Upbeat, energetic and idiosyncratic. Just three words that could be used to describe the latest single from Dutch indie-pop four-piece The Vices.
The second single to be taken from their forthcoming album of the same name, ‘Looking for Faces’ is two and a half minutes of angular indie pop, merging an almost spoken-word delivery with loose, baggy guitars. The result is a combination of snotty garage pop and Madchester style psychedelia, that suceeds in feeling both timely and timeless.
Speaking of the new track, frontman Floris van Luijtelaar said: “Looking for Faces is about finding your own face and the journey it belongs to. Along the way you find yourself on the highest peaks and lowest lows, “looking for love on the faces of the people on the street” after a break-up or passing of a loved one. These experiences impact you. On this album, and specifically this song, I discovered that for as long as you observe the world around you, think about what you see and trust your intuition, life will indeed shape you, but you can add your own signature to it. And then everything starts to become more fun…”
