Want free music? How about The Vicious Guns

The Vicious Guns are a Canadian electronic rock n' roll band featuring Jennie Vicious (vocals, bass) & Richey Vicious (guitar, vocals). Their music is characterized by lead female vocals, male harmonies, and a juxtaposition of impeccably clean/overdriven guitar tones against a backdrop of synthetic drums and samples.

“Music is our passion, therapy, obsession, and love," and they don't just sing their passion, but live it out as well. “We believe humans are intrinsically creative and compassionate and are generally beaten down by a system and institutions that want to fit into compartments and serve their interests. we need to reclaim our power as humans to lift each other up without fail, never judge or condemn, fight the power that oppresses humanity… and follow what is in our hearts. for us that is making music.”

The two are influenced by a mutual love for political punk, glam, brit pop, and new wave. “I have no opinion about being categorized. I can't control how people will perceive the music once it is recorded and released for mass consumption. I hear so many dimensions in my own songs from pop to punk to dance. Vocal phrasing or guitar tone may even be influenced by R&B or funk, but that doesn't permeate the entire collection of songs.” says Jennie. Fans of Jesus and Mary Chain, New Order, and Manic Street Preachers will fall in love… and want to take action immediately.
