The Vivs - Cd release party at the Lizard Lounge!

The Vivs - CD Release Party Info!

Boston rock band The Vivs will celebrate the release of their newest material, the Why So Dark? EP, playing with friends Bill Goffrier (Big Dipper) and Count Zero at The Lizard Lounge on Septemeber 17th. The EP will be released the same day and features four songs as a sampling of their newest material

Boston-based The Vivs features driving, Brit-influenced rock/power-pop with three-part harmonies and lyrics that are alternately funny and melancholic, but always richly evocative. Karen Harris (front woman), sings low. Terri Brosius, (keys) sings high and sweet. Pete Sutton (bass) sings gravelly right down the middle. The guitars are hazy, melodic, atonal, Richard Lloyd-ish. Influences are varied, from The Kinks, Scrawl, Fleetwood Mac, and trifecta of Smiths: Patti Smith, Elliot Smith, and The Smiths. They’ve elicited comparisons to Bettie Serveert, Yo La Tengo, Throwing Muses, Scrawl, and The Breeders, however they’re pretty hard to nut-shell.
