Vicious Vicious “I Know U Know I Know”
Do you like your indie pop with a dollop of blue eyed funk? If so, today is your lucky day (if not..don’t worry, it is Friday, so at least it is the weekend soon). Local group Vicious Vicious, a three piece of scene vets Erik Appelwick (Olympic Hopefuls, Tapes N Tapes), Martin Dosh (Dosh, Cloak Ox, Why?) and (new member) James Buckley, are back after an extended hiatus to provide the soundtrack to you hitting on that cute stranger next to you with their smooth and refined pop-soul-funk. Their new self titled LP is out now digitally and the band is celebrating this fact with a release show Saturday night at the Entry with Dan Mariska and the Boys Choir. Listen below to the lead single “I Know U know I know,” which finds the band settling in on a sultry, mid tempo groove with Appelwick’s pleading falsato dripping out of the speaker. I nominate this song, and record, as your local guilty pleasure for this month.
