Violent Soho – Everything Is A OK

You may have noticed a pandemic risen its brutal head around the world, so for many of our mental health music helps, it keeps us together with a bit of humour through these mad emotional times. Aussie band Violent Soho have done exactly that with the latest record, affectionately named “Everything is A-OK”. Like many of us stuck at home, this is the time new music make help keep us sane.

They sound to have a grunge ethos, as Luke Boerdam’s vocal style and they sound influenced from early years of bands such as Sonic Youth, Mudhoney and Smashing Pumpkins. Luke manages to evoke a reaction in this time isolation probably isn’t too difficult at the moment.


It is reminiscent of the early Seattle Sound evoking moods of those uncomfortable feelings a 16-year-old gets at that time of life.  Vacation Forever and Lying On the Floor are the standout tunes off this record because of the garage rock sound.
