They got their start in Spokane, now they're dropping by from Seattle!
Originally they were known as Ambulance for Angeles, centered in town at Gonzaga. Recently they changed their name to Viper Creek Club. It's rare to hear such a lush, full sound from a duo. They accomplish it with help from some impressive technology. Lead singer Mat has an arsenal of keyboards, rhythm machines, and samplers. He is able to manipulate them in real time, singing while playing bass and rhythm parts on separate keyboards to a custom rhythm track. He occasionally switches to rhythm guitar. Guitarist Brandon routes his Fender Telecaster through numerous effects, using the delay effect as an enhancement to the rhythm, similar to The Edge from U2. The result is an emotive, unique indie-pop sound with a rock/electronica instrumentation. This Sunday they will bring their full live set-up to the Local Lounge and perform several songs in addition to spinning cuts from their new CD.
Check out Viper Creek Club on Spokane's 103.1 KCDA Local Lounge this Sunday, February 21st at 10 pm PST.
