The surreal times we live in hurt lots of young bands/artists, especially when they
released new work they wanted to promote with gigs, until that awful coronavirus
erased all touring plans. One of those up and coming acts is ardent Belgian indie trio VVYNN (read: win) who made a firm impression with their first two EPs, ‘Crumble’ in
2017 and ‘Lux’ in 2018.
The highly promising three-piece dropped two new pieces last December. Two new glowing singles showing the band’s great leap forward. Sonically they moved towards
PJ Harvey territory. You can feel and hear her electric ardour, her wayward view on pop and rock and her inflammatory voice in Vvynn‘s new work.
Both MOANING and EXHALE are heartfelt, high-powered, and energy-charged strokes with a soul-stirring sonourness and frontwoman Angie‘s vox sending shivers down your spine. Too good to forget amidst this sciene-fiction-like period.

Hope to see you soon on a stage again…
Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

Belgian indie rock trio VVYNN (read: win) released last December two new stirring
tracks, ‘Exhale‘ reminding me of PJ Harvey’s deep digging intensity and ‘Moaning’, a poignant introspection causing goosebumps. Two affecting, amplified musings lifting
the band to a higher and must hear level.
Last month they launched a graceful and expressive clip for EXHALE and recently
an equally emotive video went online for MOANING. Check it out below…
I’ve been moaning in the sun
Where no one no one
Is hearing my song
When did I ever become
The one I was hiding from
The one that started
In case you missed the Exhale clip, discover the beauty here…

Belgian indie rock trio VVYNN (read : win) made a strong impression with their first
two EPs, ‘Crumble’ in 2017 and ‘Lux’ released last year. Turn Up The Volume said back
then: “This is a threesome of gifted youngsters producing amplified guitar pop with a healthy dose of rousing adrenalin, balancing between Kristin Hersh‘s ardent Throwing Muses and
Tanya Donelly’s starry-eyed Belly, but less polished.”
The thrilling three-piece is finally back with two new impassioned and most captivating singles at the same time showing the band’s great leap forward. Sonically they moved towards PJ Harvey territory. You can feel her electric intensity, her wayward view on pop and rock music and her astonishing voice here in Vvynn‘s new work tremendously well.
Both new striking crackerjacks are remarkable for their compelling, high-powered, and
dynamic structure dragging you slowly but surely into its frenetic guitar-dominated vehemence and soul-stirring tenseness fueled by a robust drums/bass tandem, while frontwoman Angie‘s vocals send shivers down your spine. Welcome back VVYNN!
Listen here to the two new singles…
