Introducing... Viet Cong

Featuring members of Women...
Viet Cong

Cult heroes, Calgary's Women left behind them a near immaculate catalogue.

Since then, the varied members have been rather quiet, choosing to lie low and focus on new ideas. A handful of members have joined new project Viet Cong, with the impeccable 'Bunker Buster' finding its way online earlier this year.

As unforgiving as the rhetoric is - that band name, for one - the music is rather more pastoral, enticing. There are psych pop overtones, a flowery essence which matches tattered melodies with gritty production.

Signed to Mexican Summer, new track 'Static Wall' is another addictive offering. From the hazy vocals to the chirpy synth line, this is wonderfully addictive high summer fare.

Listen to it now.

Viet Cong will release their 'Cassette' EP through Mexican Summer on July 8th.
