Boomkat Product Review:
The ghosts of grungy ‘90s indie-pop percolate thru Double Virgo’s most significant EP with Vegyn’s label - a must for fans of their other project, Bar Italia, plus Dean Blunt, Mica Levi, or Yves Tumor
Comprising 2/3rds of Bar Italia, Double Virgo specialise in reiterations of a bygone sound, steering to the lower key side of ’Shine’ compilation styles with a rawer, bleeding ‘art blend of melancholic strums, sizzling drums and floppy fringe vocals.
“‘Eros In The Bunker’ is characteristically off-the- cuff, with an undertone of darkness at the same time. That’s how Double Virgo songs feel: instinctive, easy and light, like something you heard years ago blasting out of a car radio in the ‘90s - and yet at the same time, deceptively raw and real.
Occasionally, a squiggle of discordant melody, or a particularly searing image jumps out of the distorted guitar haze and grabs you by the throat. These are the moments that make Double Virgo one of London’s most exciting new sounds."
