Follies and Vices - "Statuesque" - Indie Hip Hop (Pop) And more

Follies and Vices are by their own definition an indie hip hop duo from Seattle. I guess that's a pretty good description but from a peak into their sonic psyche from their single Statuesque their aesthetic runs deeper than that description. The track has a kind of weird punk bravado in that The Garden kind of way but pop tentacles like (ok go with me) Twenty One Pilots but waaaay less emo-ish. I get the sense that Rob Auerbach and Tanner Houghton don't take themselves that serious but take the making of their music seriously.

Statuesque has got a deep groove too- hoping that these guys will have a back up band live as opposed to performing to recorded tracks. That would be sweet. I really like the last third when the song gets kind of crowd loud and anthemic and then kinda sweet. Robb and Tanner now live in Echo Park area of Los Angeles so look out for them if you live in that wonderful neck of the woods. Statuesque drops on Spotify and all digital platforms MARCH 1st.
