Venn releases new EP ‘Versus’

The eclectic singer-songwriter of alternative rock music known as Venn has released her debut EP record, “Versus.” The EP is comprised of four of her newest original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 11 minutes. A short, sweet collection of Venn music, “Versus” is a remarkable, entirely unique blend of several musical styles, stunningly powerful, arresting, inspirational, evocative, and one of the most important alt rock albums to be released in the last decade.

Venn (often stylized VENN) composes rock music that takes elements of alternative rock, experimental rock, electronica, pop music and more to mold a style all her own. She cites as main artistic influences a broad and disparate list of musicians, including among others Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, Gackt, Michelle Branch, Katy Perry, Fefe Dobson, and Green Day. Her music has much in common with some other unlikely pairings, as well, such as Pop Will Eat Itself, Sneaker Pimps, U2, and Trent Reznor.

Her voice is beautiful and strong, falling somewhere between Tracy Chapman and Alanis Morissette. One gets the distinct impression that Venn can sing anything in the world so long as she believes it should be sung. Her contralto voice spans three octaves with ease.

Intuitively, the overarching themes of her EP deal with character and individuality, entirely appropriate topics for an album so distinctly original.

“It’s about having the courage to be who you are in the face of what everyone else wants you to be,” writes the singer. “I want others to challenge the world around them – ask questions, be curious. But most importantly, I want them to challenge themselves. That’s where ‘versus’ comes into play.”

Venn’s debut EP is not an accomplishment that should be taken lightly by audiophiles and casual listeners around the globe. Hers is a perfect record, one created out of the utmost artistic integrity and sculpted into a masterpiece that positively must lead to a full-length album if there is any justice in the world at all. As it stands, music fans of all ages and creeds owe it to themselves to hear “Versus” at their earliest possible convenience. She certainly won’t be unknown for long. Get in early.

“Versus” by VENN is available online everywhere.
