Needle Drop: Vienna Ditto, “Busted Flush” EP

Vienna Ditto is band who are hard to define. With their previous EP “Ticks,” one felt you could potentially put them in the box with new wave artists such as The B-52s. They are a band who defy genre and they continue to do so with their latest EP “Busted Flush.”

Title track “Busted Flush” has a fantastic tango-like feel, almost as if its been composed especially for the Moulin Rouge. Moving swiftly to “Barracuda”—about guitarist Nigel Firth living in his barracuda bungalow boat (obviously)—this one’s more upbeat and oozing with wonderful ’80s inspired synths and sci-fi infused goodness. The final track on this multi-coloured, vibrant EP is “Boy Meets Wolf,” a blues tune that wouldn’t feel out-of-place in some sort of new-age Western.

Throughout the EP, lead singer Hatty Taylor’s voice is focused—her smoky, soft tone breathing life into each track. “Busted Flush” may not be everyone but there’s certainly a huge amount of intrigue and more than enough to dig your teeth into—mark our words.

“Busted Flush” is out now via Ubiquity Project Recordings.
