Biography
Victorian Halls have an uncanny knack for concocting gleaming, crystalline pop gems that gush a jagged, punk attitude. This Chicago based four-piece of maniacal masterminds have generated an illustrious, highly-danceable sound that’s so dangerously addictive, it should come with a warning label. They are the musical equivalent of a Pollock painting—a vibrant, utterly unreserved work of technicolor devised either by a genius or a madman. Exploding with a carousel of jangling guitars, punctuating drums and banshee-like vocals that stretch a mile-long range, their new album, Charlatan, is a magical vaudevillian wonder. Charlatan’s flawless production focuses in on the sophistication of a band that is accomplished well beyond their years. Victorian Halls have come along in a time where art and rock rarely meet, but have managed to produce an unadulterated fusion of bashing synthesizers, jarring guitars, and addictive pop vocals. Victorian Halls puts a subversive spin on white-noise rock that will burn you a new brain and keep you on your feet. Victorian Halls made a colossal impression after finishing second out of thousands in Spin Magazine’s Music Nation contest and MTV2’s “On the Rise” contest. Quickly gaining praise for their vicious, intelligent songwriting, the group’s javelin of noise hits listeners hard – in all the right places. Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction perfectly captured Victorian Halls’ music, describing the indie rock circus as having “high-strung vocals that surely have range… the sound of Saturday night” and Spin Editor Doug Brog touched on the band’s “twisted carnivalesque quality”. Often compared to The White Stripes, MGMT and Blood Brothers, Victorian Halls have wasted no time constructing a fierce disarray of musical mayhem. With Jordan Dismuke on bass, Mike Tomala on drums, Carlos Luna on piano, and Sean Lenart on vocals, these wildly artistic musicians have taken the usual musical canvas and constructed something ingenious and immaculate that at the same time exudes the sound of an out of control party--the kind your neighbors call the police on. Victorian Halls have generated undeniable success while unsigned, and their new induction to the Victory Records family only fuels the excitement of what comes next. As their boundless ambition grows, their inimitable sound of melodic chaos is going to continue to wreak havoc on stages across the country—leaving no seat left occupied.
