Brisbane trio Verum have locked in to something real potent on their debut single, Placebo.
No other way to describe it than pure, unabashed rock n roll’, the high school friends turned band mates have hit the ground running with this debut slice of goodness.
Verum have served up a hot slice of rock in their debut single, Placebo. It marks a powerful moment for the up and comers as they begin their rise to prominence.
With a taste for high octane power the boys from VERUM have crafted a sound from blues, rock and punk. They sure as hell make a lot of sound for a trio without hiding behind a wall of sound.
Overall, Placebo is a song about optimism and maintaining a positive headspace when the world tries to get you down. The chords are thrashy and instantly evoke the desire to mosh. We can absolutely see this becoming a crowd favourite as the band continue to tear it up around their local Gold Coast and Brisbane scene.
With a clip that’s equally as infectious it sees Kaden Perkinson (lead singer and guitarist), Logan Taylor (bassist) and Zane Gillespie (drummer) rocking out a sweaty show before the tune throws a curveball mid way through and drops into half time.
Check out the rocking clip below:
As Verum effortlessly switch from an all out, wall to wall gallop to a slow blues groove they prove their tactile talent for creative songwriting. The slow groove bubbles and boils until the trio round it out with a final explosion of power.
The last half of the clip is extremely fun to watch as the boys let off a bit of steam smashing guitars and drums to bits before setting them on fire.
With a debut single this solid we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Verum. All I know is there wherever they go there will be good times and good music.
