The Vovos are from Melbourne. Named after an iconic Australian biscuit that is covered in pink fondant and raspberry jam filling, it makes sense to expect the band to sound extremely sugary. But, although there is plenty of melody to the music of The Vovos, this is no bubblegum. On the 8-song Jana EP, The Vovos play DIY garagepop and indiepunk with ramshackle charm and youthful energy that sounds like a throwback to the eighties. Their songs about being lost in IKEA, schoolyard crushes, teenage drama, and climate change are a lot of fun, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this band inspire a new wave of riot girls to pick up instruments and create something of their own.
