The Vital have had a busy year between working on a new album and playing shows testing out their new material. The Winnipeg natives release their new album October and with it The Scene has an exclusive peek at their new single “Modern Living.”
The band mixes a Joy Division sound with some Replacements and Stooges attitude. With a drum line energetic enough to solve the energy crisis, and guitar licks playing all over the distortion spectrum it’s a very immediate sound. The creative use of effects spread throughout the song make it a progressively interesting listen that doesn’t just feel like a typical post-punk song. The video (below) also has an entertaining use of old school effects to make watching it as enjoyable as listening to it.
