VEHICLES / Press

“Hearing a band with a mastery of traditional song structures who manage to keep their sound fresh and interesting, while still fetishizing late-'80s pop sounds is a blast. Opener "Projections" acts as a fine introduction to anyone unfamiliar with Vehicles' work-spacey guitars, a killer chorus, and the best snare drum sound. Other highlights include the very slinky and smoky "Middle Modern," with its grooving bass and tremolo guitar, and the sugarsweet vocal harmonies and space-guitar bridge in "No Taxi."”

“Vehicles are obviously talented; smart lyrics, expert instrumentation, and an original sound that both welcomes and pushes back. They save their crescendos for just the right moments. You think you have been invited in to a warm environment and the band sets a trap, exploding full force with a barrage of slamming drums and vicious guitars.”

“This album is a veritable potpourri of influences. If you listen closely you may detect some angst ala punk, but the keytar and synthesizer provide a certain new wave feel that can’t be denied. Transporter features a haunting version of what could almost be considered a surfer rock sort of guitar riff. Liar, from Satchels & Beards, starts out slow, has a faster/harder pounding hook. Cloud has a smallish voice that sounds strained when he sings aggressively (aka screams) it works with the style of music. The track sounds like a meek person that has been pushed around and is fed up, these songs don’t want to be picked on and if you do they will kick your ass.”
