VV & the Void are a band that can fit under many different labels: Goth, dark wave or drone. Whatever you want to call them, they strike all the chord that all goth music should.

“God Machine” is the video from their first album The Upper Room. It was released earlier this year on Cleopatra Records, which is known for its support of artists on the darker side of the pop spectrum. Like I said, this song could fall under many different labels depending on the predisposition of the listener. But, whatever you want to call it, it’s enjoyable.

Anyway VV & the void is vocalist/guitarist/synthist Valentina Vel (the “VV” of the band’s moniker), bassist Brandon Robert and synthist/programmer Sven Claussen.

Weirdo who writes futurist-tinged columns about technology and science’s impact on society by night. Unfortunately, 2020 compels me to do politics too.
