Viet Cong is a canny fusion of four quite distinct voices from Calgary. Featuring former members of the much-loved band Women, Viet Cong offers up an intriguing mixture of sharply-angled rhythm workouts and euphoric ‘60s garage pop melodies. Their recent debut album was a well deserved success, with the arresting 7 songs moving at breakneck speed and recalling an almost Joy Division-esque exposition.
On stage, they are hugely engaging, delivering pop gems and instrumental acrobatics with equal aplomb, clearly delighting in the navigation of their catchy, intricate songs. For anyone with punk in their heart, make sure to catch Viet Cong at Field Day Sunday.
