Great review of Build a Box by Hot Vox
To paint Vain Galen with the label of just being a Rock band also brings connotations of injustice with it as well, as the London/Buckinghamshire based band is far more intelligent than that.
Their single, ‘Build A Box’, is a highly dynamic record that not only hops across different genres, but also showcases the immense talent of the band.
Within the intro, an unexpected wild western-esque reverb slicked guitar fill builds tension within the track before a colossal eruption of sound. Powerful guitar strokes, distorted bass fills and ever-present drums envelop the listener indefinitely.
However, this only leads to the calm before the storm. The bridge which ensues serves to transport you straight back to 90’s Seattle, in the wake of everything grunge.
After this we’re back into full gear. A tremolo picked, mammoth solo from guitarist Wayne Houchin coupled with his distinct, and impressive, vocal range takes the track to even higher heights, before an almost drone like guitar brings the track to a complete stop.
Vain Galen are a serious music lovers’ band and you’d be mad to miss them. They play at The Black Heart in Camden on Friday, February 20th.
Nice review from Rossco at London Unsigned
Three Piece Alternative Rock band Vain Galen formed in 2012 and are regulars on the London gig scene as well as venturing further afield to High Wycombe and Sheffield. They play in Camden on 20.02.16 at The Black Heart for tickets visit their website check them out!
Vain Galen have a unique groove that glides through the gears with ease. Accelerating into the fast lane, all the while taking you for a ride with them. Powerfully rocking the brake pads off gearing up for the high speed pursuit of heavy hitting lead guitars breaking down the barriers of the communication burden of the mundane A road.
Catch ’em if you can these boys are burning up the highway to hell and back!
