Vienna Ditto and their latest single – Hammer And A Nail

Vienna Ditto do a great contemporary take on rockabilly with attitude. The three piece are made up of Hatty Taylor who delivers with her sultry, smoky vocals backed by Nigel Firth on guitar and laptop and Scott Lawrence on drums and laptop.

This is no stale nostalgic remake though as the band members talents suggest. It’s as melodic and catchy as hell but some of the electronic swirls and bites that punctuate the music moves it very much into the 21st century.

Their latest single Hammer and a Nail really drills into your head like a melodic bug. With echoes of spaghetti western intrigue or even further back to those old westerns with their vast empty spaces it weaves you under its spell. We’re in that old decrepit saloon bar having crossed over the border into Mexico. You can click and hear Hammer And A Nail for yourself via soundcloud.

I feel the star of the show is talking dirty here as she attempts to lure the subject of the song into her lair. The production is kept sparse and raw to give an even dirtier overall effect and the wonderful electronic layering of sounds both old and new really bring a nice new flavour to the raw rockabilly form.

Vienna Ditto and their latest single Hammer And A Nail is out 23rd February
