Quick Overview

Vanguard Records is excited to announce the signing of Alternative Indie rockers, Viva Voce--also known as Kevin and Anita Robinson--and the release of their Vanguard label debut, The Future Will Destroy You. All songs on this new recording were written, produced and mixed by the Portland, OR duo in their home studio. The Future Will Destroy You is the most expansive, vibrant collection yet from Viva Voce and showcases Anita Robinson's post-psychedelic guitar heroics. The duo will be touring to support this new release, and have previously toured with The Shins and Jimmy Eat World, amongst others.


Viva Voce's 2011 release The Future Will Destroy You is an expansive and somewhat slow-burning mix of the indie rock, psych rock, and pop sounds they've delved into over the years. Viva Voce have always evinced an interest in the kind of garage rock meets baroque pop aesthetic of such acts as Yo La Tengo and Sparklehorse, and fans will be happy to know that not much has changed here. Once again centering on the married duo of singer/guitarist Anita Robinson and drummer Kevin Robinson, tracks like the Yo La Tengo-ish "Analog Woodland Radio" and atmospheric lo-fi dance number "Diamond Mine" are perfect afternoon car-trip tracks that find vocalist Robinson evincing something like a combination of Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval and Stevie Nicks. Similarly, the country-inflected "Black Mood Ring" keeps the Fleetwood Mac meets Luna vibe going, and the late-album epic "A Viking Love Song" is a great cinematic light-show mood piece.
