Vukovi is an American football team from Serbia.
But never mind, Vukovi are also a Scottish experimental Japanese-style pop rock quintet. They consist of singer Janine Shilstone, guitarist Hamish Reilly, bassist Jason Trotter and drummer Colin Irving.
“Sweet Swears“ is EP available from https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/Vukovi we had a listen:
After the gathering of the forces, the instruments (and vocal) erupt into passion – with guitars and drums flustering excitedly – challenging each other for the domain.
The main result of all these interactions is a carbonated angular poem – a song that has extraordinarily powerful vocal detonations. And the corresponding dominance of huge guitar thrums.
This song combines bold musicality and compositional eccentricity along its axial tilt – to create something truly remarkable. An off-kilter wonder.
Title track ‘Sweet Swears’ has huge pylons of sparkling guitar. These tower over this song.
And a low gurgling bass-line that bubbles beneath the song-line. The main voice begins sadly, but soon rises to a golden bright precipice.
The song gradually builds up into a strong and magnificent composition.
This is rivetted to perfection by pin-point accurate drum-work and and projecting guitars that seem to fly away when not anchored down.
