Melodic alt-rock from Vienna

Incognito pick of the week: Siren Call

It’s not every day I get a message from an alternative rock band in Vienna, particularly one that seems like a U.N. meeting. Siren Call makes its home in Vienna, but its members come from Bulgaria, Hungary, and the U.S. Needless to say that the message I received piqued my interest enough for me to check out the band’s single “Comfort Zone.”

Now, before I get to the music, I have to say that I don’t really enjoy the term alternative rock simply because I always wonder “An alternative to what?” But if the term alternative puts you in mind of 90s rock, then you’re definitely on the right path with this song.

This is a good, melodic rock song that reminds me of bands like The Connells (although The Connells didn’t have a female vocalist). It has that same sort of even, melodic feel to it. Vocalist Yvonne Lace (bass) also hits you with some really good lyrics like “Don’t be one of them robotic slaves of Friday night.” Sound advice. It’s true that I don’t normally feature bands based one song, but it’s a good song. Don’t just take my word for it. Give it a listen and see what you think.
