HomeMusicReview: Via Via “Deception Pass” (Woodson Lateral Records) Just like their cover artwork, Via is artsy. Indie rock with reverberating darkness is laced throughout thier latest contribution, “Deception Pass”. This is not a record for, say, a pool party or family gathering. “Deception Pass” would be much more acceptable for, say, sitting in the darkness of your room after a fruitless weekend, or a self-induced depression that you want to make the most of. Lyrics like “Look at you now, you’re wasting away. You feel like a ghost, you have no weight.”, reinforce bleakness. Lots of finger-picking, semi-Billy Corgan style lyrics, ocean samples, and bridges of eerie rock riffs abound. If you’re warming up for a bike ride or marathon, don’t cruise this record. Check it out on a cloudy day.
