Voxtrot, originating from Texas, have a more European indie sound than anything found in their part of the US. The two songs on this release are filled with driving piano lines, Smith-esque guitars and are very melodic.
The sugary pop-melody of the band is contradicted by the dark lyrics. "Somebody told me you're a junky now", the opening cry from 'Trouble' certainly makes your ears prick up. On 'Biggest Fan' the words flow like a good old Pulp story-telling tale with a repetitive chorus.
Although Voxtrot have been around since 2003, they have yet to record an album. But with these couple of tracks providing an intriguing taster, when an album is finally released it should be well worth the wait.
