The San Francisco based garage – gaze band, Void Boys are at it again. After the release of their 10-inch vinyl, 2-track single, Starfish, the band has promptly allowed The Deli Magazine San Francisco to premiere their new track, Cosmos.
This song is a previously unreleased track that is being put out by a small L.A. based cassette label called Tuesday Tapes. Void Boys' song is on side A, and shares the rest of the cassette's film with the Los Angeles based band, Hillary Chillton.
Cosmos sounds a bit more intentional than the band's previous compositions. It is romantic and soulful and shows a different side of the band, compared to their upbeat, punkier track, Starfish. Lead singer, Shannon Bodrogi's voice is clear, and has a classic ring to it as she effortlessly bellows over the intriguing, fuzzed out wall of sound that this three-piece band is able to conjure and amplify on their recordings. Cosmos is consistent with Void Boys’ signature garage-gaze sound, but this track also embodies a tighter execution that exudes more confidence, instrumentally and vocally. We like it.
We also like that they are headlining a show on Thursday, June 5th at Bottom of the Hill with Modern Man and Sea Knight. This show is going to be a loud, soulful and fuzzed out night of experimental garage rock, and we can’t wait for it to begin. We totally recommend you make your way out to Bottom of the Hill this week, and listen to Void Boy's new track, Cosmos. -je
