Venice Is Sinking
Venice Is Sinking is a five-piece from Athens, GA who will be putting out a debut full-length album on One Percent Press in March of next year. Right now, however, they have a split EP out with the Atlanta band What We Do Is Secret. Smoothie pop is what I'd call it, that's new, I made that up, so check them out.
The Cure, the Rapture, and Belle & Sebastian are terrific bands, but would you really want to toss them all in one blender? This Athens, Ga., outfit does just that, and the result is surprisingly smooth and fresh. Mix the soft, intimate vocals of B&S with DFA-style house beats and Robert Smith's expansive moods, and you're en route to Venice.
