Chicago’s Vices are tacking their sails into a grunge revivalist wind that takes swipes from Nirvana and The Foo Fighters while embracing both heavier nodes (like Queens of The Stone Age) and decidedly brainier ones (Shellac, Drive Like Jehu). Heralding in their upcoming album with the arrival of three singles, the hard hitting, “Cursed” embraces all sides nicely. They have plenty of pop coursing through the song’s veins, but they coat it in a nice layer of flanneled fuzz and ramp it up with a touch of start-stop dynamics that pound like a grunge hammer. The full album’s out at the end of the month and its clear from these first tastes, that its going to hit heavy and leave them as ones to watch in 2017.
