Ventrelles’ latest release, ‘Acid Flower’, unfolds like a sonic journey spanning 3 minutes and 30 seconds. This track seamlessly blends pulverising shoegazing walls of sound with shimmering acoustic-led foot-tapping rhythms. The result is a captivating musical experience that oscillates between raw power and delicate intricacies.
The acid-chiming melodious lyricism adds a unique layer to the composition, reminiscent of iconic bands like Echo and the Bunnymen, Pale Fountains, Chameleons, Doves, and Ride. Ventrelles skilfully pay homage to these acts while infusing a contemporary edge reminiscent of War on Drugs and DIIV.
‘Acid Flower’ serves as a tantalising preview of what’s to come from Ventrelles. Fans can anticipate the upcoming soulful stomp of ‘Sand Crawl’, followed by the promise of the band’s seminal album set to drop in the summer of ’24. With their eclectic blend of influences and a penchant for both nostalgia and innovation, Ventrelles prove to be a force to be reckoned with in the indie music scene.
