Viagra Boys – ‘Creatures’

Stockholm’s jazz-punk outfit Viagra Boys, present their latest single ‘Creatures’ for quickly approaching sophomore album ‘Welfare Jazz’ due early January.

Being made up of six guys, some trained in the art of classical jazz, some tattoo artists, and one whole San Francisco native in Sebastian Murphy at the centre of the mind dismantling Viagra Boys. This year however crippling for some, granted these jazz masters success with a short EP ‘Common Sense’ which showcased their ability to be something other than loose or as in Sweden they say lös.

Murphy seems reluctant to utter the words in ‘Creatures’ admitting to being these creatures that get by on scrounging and are infinitely droned into scrapping by. With a brutal pulsating beat that is deeply built into the background of the track, it’s like an unshakeable heartbeat of this surreal story that is spun by Sebastian. His voice is as honest as per, with the playfully deranged tone is absent for most of ‘Creatures’ but is balanced by the authenticity of his vocals.

Viagra Boys are different, they are like no other at this point in time; radical jazz with a hint of punk. What isn’t to love?
