The Voxys Gain A New Fan

The Voxys: February 12 @ Club NME at The Annex, New York, NY

I wasn't familiar with The Voxys until a couple of weeks ago. Thus, I had obviously never seen them perform. But, I checked out their music and liked what I heard so I was looking forward to their set. They didn't disappoint me either. The band, Julian Colin Sylvester (guitar/vocals), Trevor Murphy (guitar/vocals), William McCormack (bass) and Chad Flewwelling (drums) put on a fun, energetic set. Their garage rock sound was infused with the perfect amount of jangle pop to keep you dancing along the whole show.

I walked in knowing that as long as they played "Bang Out Of Order" I'd walk away from their set with a smile on my face. Well, they played it and I smiled! I however realized immediately, long before they played that particular song, that I was going to walk away from their set with a smile regardless.

If you happened to have missed the show, you missed a good one. But, fear not, if you're in the New York area, they'll be playing at Mercury Lounge on March 12.

I enjoyed them a lot. Check them out live if you get the chance. You'll have a good time.

For those in need of The Voxys at home, they have a four song EP out titled Bang Out Of Order. An EP isn't nearly enough but it'll hold you over.
