Sean Dodd (vocals/guitar), Julian Stefanzick (vocals/guitar), Owen Burr (bass) and Julian Tennyson (drums) are Virgo Virgo. The four-piece band released a demo EP they were in their late teens.
Their EP is extremely lo-fi - there’s just no denying that. There are some decent songs behind the production that were fairly dormant with potential. They open with “Exceptions” which revolves around a couple of flimsy guitar chords. The vocals felt fragmented in their delivery as the vocalist seemed to be singing about some of his sexual curiosity. I applaud the drummer for being inventive and keeping the energy up. That being said the song did have timing issues.
Up next is “Keep In Touch” where the band has a little more success. They hit upon a garage rock vibe not too far off from a band like The Strokes. The song is pretty catchy and poppy; all things considered the band just needs to work on staying in the pocket.
“Dinner Rolls” is a minute long distorted song that was upbeat and light. They close with the highlight entitled “Go” which seems like the lament of a young man in his early 20’s. He sings about apprehension, trying pot and not understanding why he feels bad.
The band has some potential but falls into a case of wait and see. Beside the recording quality which will have to improve if they hope to capture a large audience they need to focus on staying in time with each other. That doesn't mean they need to be able to play along with a click they just need to be synced in together.
All things considered the EP builds a foundation for them to grow on.
