Aversions are a Vancouver-based four-piece that really pack a punch. Their debut EP, Base Portrait, is set to be released on 27th March, and here at Independent Music News, we’re lucky enough to be sharing it with you.
Opening with delightfully distorted guitars, Aversions waste no time in getting right to the action with Night Class. The vocals are reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne in his prime and come in with a stark and direct delivery. You get the sense that the song has a life of its own, and the soundwaves could take physical form before reaching out of the speakers and dragging you in at any second. A melting pot of influences blend together to create something new.
From there, Bill Got Got invites you into an insane world of catchy melodies and crunchy guitars, before moving into the calmer Flattener. Their debut single Cistern Chapel, which was released on 6th March, also features on the EP and is reminiscent of the seminal song Marquee Moon by alternative legends Television. It’s clear to see why Aversions released this track first, as it’s a fantastic amalgamation of wonderful sounds that leaves the listener wanting more. Final record Simulation Fire is our favourite. Why? Press play, and you’ll understand. Seriously! Press the button.
We love this EP and can’t wait to see what this noisemaking quartet do next, but for now, let’s sit back and enjoy Base Portrait in all its glory!
