Style And More

31 May

From the video for “Cheap Style” alone, one can easily see that Modern Vices embrace their good natured retro sound, but there is definitely a gritty underbelly to the tune.

It is hazy, loud, and brazen.   There is a garage rock feel to it, but it mostly feels like something The Doors might unleash like “Break On Through (To The Other Side)”  mixed with Steely Dan’s “Do It Again.”

No matter how you slice it, this is alternative rock, or just plain rock at its peak. Lead singer Alex Rebek, does not hold back here, growling and crooning in a way Jim Morrison would most likely be proud of. The lyrics of the song are lost within the psychedelic vocals and garage rock sensibilities, but that only makes  “Cheap Style” that more true to its retro nature.

“Cheap Style” is short and sweet and packs enough punch to carry one through on multiple repeat listens.
