Viva Viva is Rock & Roll. The band’s unbridled energy can be heard on this highly anticipated self-titled debut album. Viva Viva’s reputation has grown steadily over the years and is supported by “the shoulders of explosive live performances”. Coined in 2010 as Boston’s “best live Rock n’ Roll band” by the editor of the Boston Phoenix, Viva Viva’s eager fans finally have an album that captures that ethos.
After years of blood, sweat, tears and whiskey bottles, Viva Viva has an album that is equally as impressive and catchy as their live show. With influences from the heyday of the 60s and 70s, their sound is equal parts infectious-pop and dark-stomping-blues, combined with their own blend of hope, disappointment, grit and wit. “Keep Looking Good Looking” and “Valentine” have been getting spins regularly on Boston’s WFNX Radio, and moving sweaty crowds of fans at the band’s high-energy shows.
