Review: VoirVoir – There Are No Good Goodbyes
Album: There Are No Good Goodbyes
Genre: Indie rock
Label: Fleeting Youth Records
Bethlehem’s own VoirVoir has had quite a year. Not only did the indie rockers open for genre kings The Flaming Lips at Musikfest, but they recently took a trip down Austin, TX, performing at the world-famous SXSW in March.
Surely, they’ll keep the gained momentum going when their album, “There Are No Good Goodbyes,” is re-released this year on Fleeting Youth Records. The ten-track offering provides rich soundscapes and fresh ideas, giving listeners a taste of the band as never heard before.
The album features plenty of high-energy moments like album opener, “I Wanna,” a youthful track fit to begin the soundtrack for a devil-may-care night drive. Meanwhile, the heavier, rock-driven “Let’s Not” kicks things into high gear, with brief spells from its nicely-contrasting, dreamy chorus.
“There Are No Good Goodbyes” features plenty more atmospheric moments. The title track, in particular, carries a moody, dark ambiance, while “His Last Sound” is enriched by beautiful vocal harmonies and standout guitar work.
Produced to bring out a full, ambient sound, “There Are No Good Goodbyes” sends VoirVoir heading in an exciting direction – one that causes the ears to stay engaged and the mind enlightened.
