All seductions should come with a little essence of raw and dirty temptation and that is something you certainly get with the sound of Vienna Ditto, especially in new single Hammer And A Nail. The release is a sultry affair; a steamy and climactic persuasion but equally offers a mellow croon with intimate charm, a mix which simply enthrals and excites. The British band has been nibbling away at major attention for a little while now, with increasing success through their releases, but Hammer And A Nail might just be the spark to lure in the most potent of spotlights.

London based Vienna Ditto is the creation of Hatty Taylor and Nigel Firth, a duo meeting when the latter started teaching the former guitar when she was 11 years old. After a couple of years the two lost touch but a chance meeting in the street in 2009 sowed the seeds to their union as Vienna Ditto. Reaping and weaving the essences of smoky blues, psychedelic rock, and electronica for their fascinating sound, the pair has found interest and air play with the likes of BBC Radio One, BBC6 Music and XFM, as well as highly praising reviews across numerous publications. Now it is 10919057_10152609779061517_1589235084162101861_nthe new single’s turn to push the band on and lure more to join their already strong and devoted following.

Hammer And A Nail opens on a gentle caress of guitar within an electronic wind, a barren landscape already being suggested to the imagination as the continental vocal delivery of Taylor flames within the broadening climate. Melodies come with a sixties colour and character, something persistently and enjoyably spicing their songs generally, whilst Taylor‘s voice has, as everyone seems to mention, a bewitching Edith Piaf quality to its tempting. The song itself brings a Morricone cultured soundscape with a soundtrack cast by a fusion of The Animals and Portishead. It holds an atmospheric breath which swirls around ears and Taylor whilst the skills and invention of Firth provide a transfixing maelstrom of enterprise and expression which is almost tempestuous in character and compelling in its precisely sculpted beauty.

Hammer And A Nail is also a proposition which lingers long after its parting with the senses; worming under the skin, into the psyche, and ultimately into the passions with sublime efficiency. The single is truly a mouth-watering temptation from Vienna Ditto, their finest moment yet, and the next major step in the band’s spellbinding of the UK music scene.

Hammer And A Nail is available from February 23rd
