Viper Arms is an all-female band from Turku in Finland. You Will Not Possess Me is their third single.
A video has just been released for the single.
We had a listen:
A cot of intricate guitars and some riveting drums create a framework that introduces the husky voice of Niina.
This is plummy and dry with a sense of depth and sourness that seems particularly rare.
The melody has a lot of interesting curves & corners, with ghostly falsehoods hinted at during some of those elongated notes — and becomes especially supernatural as the stepping-down chords stride-in to create an atmosphere of threat and agitation.
Sensual and passionately magical pop-rock — with intriguing vocals — this is stuffed with exquisite musical enterprise.
