"A great roaring energy that is powerful while being chilled at the same time.” – Tomatrax
From elegantly smooth acoustic tones to powerful blues-soaked choruses, its no surprise Vorsen is turning heads across the country with their diverse yet distinguished sound. The Perth four-piece combine warm smokey vocals with organic intimate melodies to create heart-on-your-sleeve tracks to the likening of acts such as Matt Corby, Of Monsters and Men and John Butler. Despite being tucked between a variety of genres, Vorsen’s characteristic blend of blues/rock tied in with their energetic and devoted live performances have given them a bold name in the local music scene.
Vorsen’s debut self-titled EP was a stunning insight into the sheer range of the bands sound. Their single “Hurricane” from the album was featured in the Top 5 on the triple j Unearthed roots chart for weeks and was well received both online and by radio across the country.
Following the release of their debut self-titled EP comes the lively follow-up track ‘Take Your Mark”. The single has been captured and produced beautifully by engineer Andy Lawson (Eskimo Joe, Gyroscope) at Debaser Studio, and mastered by legend William Bowden (Gotye, Paul Dempsey). “Take Your Mark” represents a perfect fusion of their multi-genre tastes, a lively blend of twangy acoustic guitars, thunderous kick drums, dreamy vocal harmonies and even a horns section.
"Take Your Mark" is an important song for us to release. Previously our recordings have been quite raw/stripped back whereas this track had a lot of emphasis on production while still maintaining an organic feel. The theme of the song centers on making the decision to chase what you love, and to go at it with full force. Andy was a big factor in translating that message into the way we recorded the track. Bouncing ideas off each other, experimenting and building the song, and really just going for it in every take we did. We had a lot of fun recording the track and I think Andy captured that energy perfectly,” says the band on the recording of the track.
"Take Your Mark” is a beautifully crafted piece that is both polished yet natural with soaring vocal hooks and driving guitar lines, an exceptional follow-up release. Catch their single launch at the Odd Fellow in Fremantle (August 6th) or Eastern States tour mid September."
"It’s both smooth and perfectly rough.” – Adam Diminic, Radio Fremantle.
