Influences: Voicex are inspired by pop, postpunk, riot grrrl, disco, poetry, anime and the list goes on…
History: Voicex started with two guitarists jamming together for a few weeks last summer. The tunes got more structure and suddenly Coco joined the party on bass. Suky was spotted MC’ing at a Girls Rock School benefit, and two weeks later she was in. An appeal on Twitter for a likeminded drummer led to old friends Colin and Paul reuniting, completing the Voicex lineup. “Never” was the first song we wrote, recorded and released in December.
Sound: Voicex’s sound updates the postpunk vision for 2018. It ranges from skeletal keyboard-led poetry to pulsing full-on rock. Guitars clash and grind. The bass bounces around the upper register. The drums stop and start. And the unique Suky sings and declaims in a haze of poetry and dramatic pop. The lyrics speak of lost love, hedonism, late nights and early mornings, adventures inside the wardrobe.
The result is confident, upbeat punk pop with attitude and discord. Viva Voicex!
