How about some Disturbia to start your week? No, I’m not talking about the 2009 hit from Rihanna or the teen thriller movie starring Shia LaBeouf, I’m talking about UNFD’s very own Void of Vision and the release of their EP “Disturbia” dropped late last week. If you haven’t heard of Void of Vision, who are you and where have you been the last 4 years?
Disturbia is a 4 track, 11 minute BANGER of an EP that was stealthily released on November 10th. EP opener ‘Spite’ opens with a short scream from vocalist Jack Bergin and picks up with the heavy, quick beat that continues throughout the fast track. With a short fade out, the progression to ‘Ghost In The Machine’ is almost missed until you find yourself singing along to the clean melodies from guitarist James McKendrick. So far this EP has a good mix of “Broken//Bones” & “Children of Chrome” and everyone seems to be loving this. The second last track on the EP ‘You Will Bring Me Down’ will have you singing along with James once again to the very popular phrase “misery loves company” during the chorus. A cliché lyric, but Jack’s delivery of unclean and emotional vocals will have you forgetting how cliché their lyrics can be. The EP finishes up with ‘Grey Area’ which begins as if it’s an outro only to pick up again just before the 1 minute mark and keep you hanging out until the very end.
The release comes perfectly timed ahead of their Australian tour with brothers Graves, and the music video for ‘Ghost in the Machine’ has already reached 13 thousand views over the weekend. This song is an absolute banger with all the heavies you’d expect and some of the catchiest clean vocals from the boys yet. If this is a sneak peak of what’s to come in 2018 from Void of Vision, I am more than ready.
Are Void of Vision now a four piece?
I feel like we’ve missed something though. They’ve been quiet for a while now, and this can happen when bands are preparing new music, but did anyone notice a missing member throughout the film clip? The clean vocals are sounding a tad different? Without an official departure from the band or any official statement, it leads to curiosity of whether Bassist Matt Thompson has left for good or is simply too busy exploring the world and missed the chance to be involved on the EP. Boys, what’s going on?
We hope whatever it may be, things are sweet between the band and Matt and maybe we’re just overthinking things. Regardless, we are absolutely stoked for these boys and the fact that early next year they’re on the plane back to Europe to play alongside Miss May I, Fit For A King & Currents.
