Post-Punk.com has premiered "Let Me In," the new single by Vincas.
Stream the song, here:
"Let Me In" appears on Phantasma, the band's new album, out May 29th on Learning Curve Records.
From Athens, Georgia, Vincas' macabre, danceable post-punk rocks like the reanimated corpse of The Birthday Party, by way of David Lynch, relocated to a shack in a Georgia swamp.
Inspired by the likes of H.P. Lovecraft, vampiric lust oozes through lyrics such as: "I’ll crawl through your window / I’ll scratch, let me in / Say the words and let me in."
Post-Punk.com states: "Hailing from Athens, Georgia, deathrock act Vincas are invoking a special kind of Southern flair to their dreary punk-infused cemetery dirges. These haunted melodies and vampiric tunes are more Birthday Party than Bauhaus, and the Caveman and late Roland S. Howard might approve of these macabre whiskey-soaked anthems that stagger along with swamp-like guitars, growling bass, and frontman Chris McNeal’s wicked baritone croon."
Bass/synth/vocalist Chris McNeal also plays in Maserati (whose new album came out in April on Temporary Residence)
Guitarist Gene Woolfolk is a member of noise-rock supergroup Plaque Marks.
Phantasma is Vincas' third full-length. The album was engineered by Mike Albanese (Maserati), and mixed and mastered Kyle Spence (Harvey Milk).
