North-East is churning out young, talented bands over the years and an addition to the region’s premier live acts ,VIRGIN CREEP, throughout their one year of journey have reached maturity.
The Guwahati quintet experiments Alternative Rock with a grunge amalgamation. To all those who thinks the 90’s are dead, VIRGIN CREEP makes the answer!
BECOMING A PRISONER opens up with a soft vocal tones mixed with chiming riffs and follows up a sequence in feedback. Considering the informal and dis-ordered style of ‘twee-pop’, this new sound is more about soft textures and firm choruses. The mid-section of BECOMING A PRISONER steadily takes you to an ambience of elation, with the ‘overdrived’ distorted guitars ,well synchronised drums and periodic high-pitched vocals.
Towards the end, a solo ladened with enthralling grooves, solid drum-kicks and powered vocals gives a swift movement to the rhythm of the song. Lyrical theme of the song is based on the life of a man, his love and pain!
BECOMING A PRISONER is not going to disappoint!
