CD REVIEW: VITNE – Endless Blue EP

Vitne - Endless Blue EP

Vitne Eveille – aka Jo Kimbrell – ‘s last album Neon was hard rock tempered by flashes of new wave and light touches of an electro-industrial nature, the whole adding up to a refreshingly unique album from a man who looks like he’s going to create a truly impressive body of work over time.

This new EP is different, more organic. Lead guitarist Julian Angel – always a pleasure to wrap our ears around – weaves his magic throughout these six tracks, his mad skills always bolstering the strengths of each song and the playing (bass, guitar, synth, flute as well as vocals) of Vitne himself.

Opener Rain Of Hope picks up where the last album left off, before Endless Blue and Himitsu Village Of The Sea take us on a sonic and lyrical journey that is more prog rock than we were expecting.

Serenity is a beautiful and – yes – serene acoustic piece which is as evocative of the ocean (see a theme here yet?) as it is beguiling. It’s a simply wonderful piece of music.

Misery stands out by virtue of its sheer rock edge, and as Vitne sings “I already know that it’s over – I’m drowning in this misery / I’m alright though I’m not sober” we can instantly relate and see that it fits perfectly into the EP’s watery theme.

Like the ebb and flow of the waves The Ocean brings us to the opposite shore of this little gem of a record. Vitne’s unique phrasing may never see him hit the top of the charts, but he’s got something special going on, and this may be his most progressive track yet.
