Venice May Shows Carries Meaningful Lyrics & Strong Sound In Album Illusion Is Inevitable

22 Oct

Prepare yourself for a moody and strong album entitled Illusion is Inevitable from duo Venice May. Vocalist Natalia Samofalova switches vocal styles back and forth sounding more ambient at times, and then switching to post grunge. Heavy guitar sounds that could be mistaken for synth and drum beats setup the musical arrangement as fundamental aspects of their alternative rock vibe. Emotions run heavy on the album with no weak tracks or scattered flow in sight. Hiding Place on the album singles itself out mainly due to every arrangement and vocals on the track coexisting and co-creating into its own masterpiece. Despite Venice May being Natalia Samofalova’s and Vincent Bedfert’s first ablum, all the tracks on this collection of work are strong, cohesive, and nothing short of memorable.
