Single Review: Ray Dar Vees

By on Wednesday, 2nd June 2010 at 12:00 pm

When a song opens up with a blast of noise that leaves you dangling in a freeze-frame daze, wondering where the hell it will take you next, the outcome usually ends in a fired up excitement or just a terrible let down. Fortunately, the results come in the former for Ray Dar Vees and their single, “Heart Attack.”

Even if the lyrics aren’t the most original, “The world is spinning round/ And we’re under the ground” props should be given to this debut single from the south London trio. They’ve managed to neatly plop in some of their influences, ranging from U2 and Echo and the Bunnymen, all while slapping in some original sounds to make the single wholly distinct and fresh. And rather contagious, too.

Equally impressive, the band have been together for less than a year after all, and things are already kicking of them, having garnered significant support from many, most notably XFM. Let’s hope the momentum doesn’t slow down for this relatively young band. Believe the hype and check this worthy song out.
