Label: LAB Records
Released: 7th October 2022
Three albums in, and VUKOVI are a band still showing signs of growth.
Big, bright and always on blast, ‘NULA’ is a sci-fi inspired epic, built around its titular character. Understanding the modern pop circus but with a determination to drive it into new, more visceral places, where many concept records might get too hooked up on that core narrative, ‘NULA’ manages to push beyond its story to find the personal too.
With the playful, taunting dynamics of sugar sweet hyperpop pushed through the grater of brutal riffs and soaring melody, VUKOVI aren’t keeping quiet for anyone. ■ Dan Harrison
