"Violent Vickie is a rebellious pit of energy that has the ability to make you feel dirty and gritty, but in a naughty-feel-good way. Side effects to her music include: sudden urges to blow pot smoke in an officer’s face, break into abandoned buildings and have sex in public places. What gives the sound such grit are the eerie waves of bass-heavy vibrations, the looping and layering of sound effects, the steady thumping beats and the melodic keys providing an ‘up’ element to the otherwise heavy sound. Her vocals are thick spilling from her lips like a sticky cotton candy explosion. The softness in her voice comes off dark with intensity and glamour which contrasts the sharpness of her themes that revolve around broken social contructs and feminist ;) richness and complexity of her sound latches on like a succubus; so, good luck fighting off withdrawls
Attempting to classify Violent Vickies as electro pop or industrial punk is a giant waste of time. Without skipping a beat her sound can vary from a soft seduction to a raucuous spew. This gives the music a human-like quality in it’s ability to make her album, Monster Alley, a multi-dimensional exploration of the hard/soft complexity of the human existance. In February of this year, Violent Vickie released a roaring combustion of agression in her EP, “Fuck You!!!!!” The bay area attitude/influence is completely apparent in the band’s perspective."
