Brooklyn guitar-rock group Vivian Girls has a no-skills sound, something you dont nail down so much as try on, and get by on a certain chemistry. The bands shitty rock jaunts might soundtrack flirty fun, a killer high school movie montage, or any random bikes-in-the-kitchen Central District house party taking an unexpected turn for the fun. Or Neumos. Theres a twist: When a few girls sing at the same time, and through a car wash of reverb, their voices ring and chime. Not exactly the band the world needs most. Doesnt matter. An aura is created, and the aura is bitchy/bored.
