Venus Effect – It Would Be You

a0751286223_10It Would Be You, the follow up to Into the Fire, showcases a gentler side of grunge. Softer, at times almost discordant vocals wind themselves around power drums and steady guitar and bass. This is as close to a ballad as grunge will allow.

This track is evocative of Puddle of Mud’s classic tune, Blurry, yet vocally much closer to Nirvana picking up where Kurt Cobain left off but with slightly more harmonic delivery. Venus Effect takes the grunge sound that blew the doors off music in the 90s and makes it fresh for the next generation. Well done. Noelle Ellis,
