Vex Red : Can’t Smile

Score irresistible single...

Could this be the moment where [a]Vex Red[/a] tear off the protective wrapping and the tag marked ‘UK’s most likely to rock’ and floor everybody with their seething wonderfulness? Hope so. ‘Can’t Smile’ is an irresistible single, all [a]Placebo[/a]-dark hues and snarling, electronically enhanced undercurrents. And so easy to relate to, given the congenital difficulty of most moshers to see the bright side of anything. If we were a passing builder, in fact, we’d advise Vex to cheer up – they’re gonna do just fine.
