It’s been a hot minute since we last heard from L.A.-based soul-pop project, VOKES. The brainchild of writer, producer and singer Mike Harris, the project has for some time now been a solo effort and an outlet for Harris’ artistic and personal musings. While Harris has proven quite capable on his own, the time has come for a few extra hands. And today, we get our first glimpse of that new set up.
Almost a year-and-a-half since we last featured VOKES here on the site, Harris has returned with four new bandmates and a refreshing new sound. Building on Harris’ existing work, new members Dylan, Sean, Trae and Garrett give VOKES a fuller and more explosive pop/rock sound. Together, they proved this with their first offering as a band, “Screens,” and again here today on new single, “Expectations.”
Taken from their forthcoming Delusions EP, “Expectations” is a big, playful and jangly hit of pop/rock with just the right amount of grit. Full of electrifying guitar riffs, pounding drums and glowing synths, the new group have made their presence felt – and in a big way at that!
Listen to “Expectation” below and keep an eye out for the Delusions EP, which is scheduled for release next month.
