VIVIAN VOID 'DIV.' (WR039)
(Band photo by Juli Sing)
Vivian Void are a seven piece all girl band based in the south of Germany. They've spent the last year playing sporadic concerts and meeting every Wednesday night to play loud pop music together. They tape these rehearsals on various iPhones and sometime last year we got hold of what they had on them.
Culled from almost 8 hours of chaotic, noise filled mobile phone recordings we think 'DIV.' is an exhilarating hour of chaotic noisy inventive music.
Spontaneous acapella sing-a-longs in nightclubs, sweet acoustic songs in corridors and the meat of the thing - distorted, random snatches and slabs of ideas in a Nürnberg rehearsal room. The girls swap instruments throughout - using various keyboards, guitars and drums - singing first thoughts and making most of it up as they run along.
The self imposed restriction of the album - only mobile phone voice recordings with no multitrack editing - creates a sensation of something bursting at the seams. More bang than pop.
''Div.' ist wie eine grelle Wunderkammer oder ein barockes Kuriositätenkabinett von heute – einmal kräftig durchgeschüttelt und in die Welt geworfen und dabei so vielseitig, dass es den jungen Damen kaum möglich sein wird, auf der Stelle zu treten.
'Div.' is like a dazzling chamber of wonders or a baroque cabinet of curiosities for these times...'
'Vivian Void is fresh, different, exciting, unexpected and above all exceptional.'
