Band spotlight: V.E.G.A.S Whores

V.E.G.A.S Whores are a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a jawdropping wall of electronic sound. Their highly rhythmic tracks are deft but intense, complex but instantly accessible, and excel in the art of repetition and variation. They've already taken part in the Neu gallery series alongside S.C.U.M and An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump, and they will be continuing to preach the gospel of dystopian discotheque over the next few months with some well-placed live dates. (Have a listen also to I. R. Hedonist, the group’s side-project, which continues the dalliance with electronic music but adds a healthy dose of gothic rock to present a more dark and lyrical variant.)
