Another Portland gem from Goth City, USA. This is proof that there are benefits to not having sunshine for close to 10 months out of the year. I am convinced the musical uprising will happen direct from the moistened soils of the Pacific NW. Vice Device have a kind of post punk electronic vibe going on and they clearly have pulled off that drum trigger effect from The Cure’s “A Forest”. When you play this back to back with the likes of Soft Kill, Swahili and Virgin Blood you can see a cohesiveness evolving in the Portland scene. There are beautiful dark days ahead in Portland.
