Venkman is an English quintet, influenced by the likes of Kate Bush, Prince and Michael Jackson. This ep is the follow up for a pretty successful single and a decent overview of what this band is capable of. I think, and I actually hope, that a full-length will be released in the near future because as far as I'm concerned, this could be the future of pop music.
Venkman blends funk and pop-rock together and turns the whole into four uplifting song. Although they're highly danceable, there also seems to be a flair for experimentation, even reminding me of some experimental heavy bands like Sleepytime Gorilla Museum for instance. Other bands I think about are Cranberries and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
'Tapout', 'The Friar' and 'Deep Sea Diver' are cheerful songs but my absolute favorite is the funky rocker 'Andrew, You're Horizontal Again'. This definitely is a party starter and it will probably find the way to my media player often from now on. So if you want something different or you just like quality pop, rock and funk music, this certainly is your cup of tea.
