Greeted by a cascading guitar that beckons fireworks, a retro indie beat kicks in and is pretty much embedded into the fabric of Moritat's project. The female vocals of mixed with the video game soundtrack effect/Casio keyboard over an indie rock rhythm section makes the DIY approach even stronger. Refreshing!
Moritat is a power trio from Chicago comprised of vocalist and keyboardist Venus Laurel, bassist Konstantin Jace and drummer Corey McCafferty. Her vocals remind me a little of Riki Michele, former background vocalist with Adam Again, yet the feel of the quirky actress Zoey Daschaenel with its playfulness. This is fun DJ-on-the-dance floor-ish indie pop, as in they could have easily been the opening band touring with Daniel Amos back in the 80's.
