CD review: Vivian Girls

Artist: Vivian Girls

Album: Share the Joy

Label: Polyvinyl

Rating: 4

Infiltrating the minds of youthful lovers, thinkers and everything in between, Vivian Girls knows how to capture the great essence of infectious pop.

As a New York-based girl band, Cassie Ramone, Katy “Kickball Katy” Goodman and Fiona Campbell make up a feisty trio – rattling up a storm of echoing drums and seemingly unfiltered vocals. All three girls sing and play their own instruments. Pretty kick ass, no?

Share the Joy, their third album since 2008, showcases a lot of the Vivian Girls’ signature popularity in the indie rock/pop scene. There is no shortage of frazzled guitar lines or fun spoken narratives in between sung lyrics. “Dance (If You Wanna)”reveals the Vivian Girls’ great harmonies and the band’s ability to make “you wanna” just sway along to the catchy tune of constant drums.

Give these tracks a listen: “Dance (if you wanna)”, “Light In Your Eyes,” “The Other Girls”

For fans Of: Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls
