Vex Red : Can't Smile

...an irresistible single...

Could this be the moment where Vex Red 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 Placebo-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.
