Vivian Girls, Blood Oranges, Get Serious, Medusa Snare: BSC – 22/01/10

vivian girls

A cram packed evening at the Brudenell saw 3 bands supporting New Yorks Vivian Girls
First up were Medusa Snare who started a bit slow but then (fittingly as there was a New York theme and they had a girl drummer) eased into Velvets territory.
get serious

Manchesters Get Serious breezed in from the 80’s with their own brand of shouty girl pop – loved the guitar work.
blood oranges

Blood Oranges, whilst new on the scene sounded the most accomplished of the supports – one to watch

The Vivian Girls need a little getting used to. their first LP didn’t really do it for me on initial listening, but it’s a grower – as is their new one.

The tight harmonies can get lost in the thrash of their guitar sound which is why it was so nice that they did an acapella song (shangri-las style) to show this aspect of their sound off
