VWLS // VWLS by Mike Iverson

VWLS comes out of the gate swinging with their first professionally produced, self-titled effort, and it’s immediately apparent that these guys aren’t pulling any punches when it comes to producing mathy, stimulating rock. While the all too short demo only features four tracks, the disc is packed with technical intricacies and catchy hooks. From the psychedelic, jam-worthy riffage of the opening track “Puppet” to the reverb-heavy refrains of “Falling Down,” the demo is an absolute treat. While the vocals might lay a little low in the mix at times, they still provide an excellent compliment to the complexity of VWLS’s instrumental ensemble, which remains the true star of the demo. Best of all, this group is one of many remarkable up-and-coming local acts, and their dedication to their craft is a sure sign of hope for the continued growth of the Erie music scene.
