With a string of singles, EPs, and an album already under their belt, Queensland-based three-piece Venice On Fire have spent the past number of years carving out a unique space for themselves in the Australian alt-rock scene. Their music equal parts hard-hitting and emotionally resonant; a balance seldom achieved so effortlessly.
Now, with the release of their latest single Nov 2, the band continue to establish themselves as one of the most promising emerging acts in Aussie music. If you’re not already across this name, it’s definitely time you changed that.
On their blistering new single Nov 2, Toowoomba-based trio Venice On Fire present an emotionally charged slice of alt-punk brilliance.
Throughout the new single, Venice On Fire stomp through a blistering concoction of alt-rock and punk to craft a sound that feels simultaneously familiar and fresh. With crunching guitars, thunderous drum beats, and anthemic vocal hooks, Nov 2 is the kind of track that’ll hit you right in the chest.
Vocalist Tom Gillespie’s lyrics carry real emotional weight, and backed by Che Smith and Darcy Cavanough’s searing instrumentation, they’re guaranteed to leave a mark.
Driven by the story of an altercation between two ex-lovers, the track features perspectives from multiple sides, creating an immersive listening experience. By the time Nov 2 reaches its conclusion, you’ll be left hanging on each word.
Nov 2 is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from Venice On Fire, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality material.
For now, do yourself a favour and listen to Nov 2 above.
