Call to Arms
"...sounds like The Birthday Party doing Johnny Cash."
I wouldn't necessarily throw names like Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Cave around when describing Viarosa, but then again, I'm not the UK press. But the band does make haunting, eerily dark "country-noir" that is sure to elicit chills, similar to the aforementioned artists. This track is taken from their 2005 album Where The Killers Run, which will be will be re-released by Pronoia Records in October '06:
