L.A. duo Verhoven comprised of Thrice Noble (vocals, synth) and Scott Glenn (guitars) have just released their debut EP which effortlessly blends electronic with elements of rock music. Their songs are refreshingly bright and fun. “Manimal” finds us with an infectious guitar driven track elevated with synths and wrenching vocals. While “Fancy Boy” seems a little odd since I’ve never had the pleasure of hearing any male call themselves a “fancy boy”, the strangeness of the song is quickly forgotten as the EP goes on. “Black Like the Moon” is where Verhoven’s electro-rock sound shines best with its buzzing guitar work to drive the song home. The EP ends on a strange yet satiating note with a Hall & Oates cover of “Out of Touch”. Adding their own futuristic spin, their spin on the classic is innovative and completely their own. With Verhoven’s mixture of guitars and synths, they’ve managed to make a debut EP that brings to mind a carefree euphoric world fully equipped with fruity drinks and palm trees.

Listen to their debut EP in full on the band’s Soundcloud.

Verhoven is Thrice Noble and Scott Glenn.
