VOSH

Booking Agent : Alex Schmidt & Nikita Netrebko

An outfit conceived by Chris Moore (Repulsion) and Josephine Olivia (Blacksage) in Washington DC in 2019, VOSH explodes with sexual energy, aggression, longing andsheer power.
Layers of electrifying guitars, heavy synths, thunderous drums, andJosephine’s unmistakable voice create a haunting landscape. Built on muscle andsweat, VOSH is a machine blazing it’s own trail– fusing the grace and finesse of a living breathing force summoning something sinister and sexy.
VOSH’s debut album VESSEL explores an amalgam of influences that range from Bauhaus to early Ministry to Sisters of Mercy to Zounds to Killing Joke to latter day titans Nine Inch Nails.
And while a wide reaching and generic term such as “synth pop”or “darkwave” could be applied to the effort in broad strokes, the drama, intensity and excellent songwriting evokes something much deeper, more sinister, and darklybeautiful.
VESSEL doesn’t just slither, it bangs and bursts with explosive energy, juxtaposing an icy goth cool with red hot heightened drama and muscle.
Vocalist, lyricist and front person Josephine Olivia is the musical centerpiece for VOSH, mixing the dreamy and ethereal approach of Hope Sandoval or Alison Shaw (Cranes), the versatility of David Bowie, and the commanding power of greats like Siouxsie, Diamanda Galas or Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance). Her vocal sails above it all, presenting haunting melodies in a dramatic and forceful manner that nods to voices from goth, dream pop, indie and elements in traditional pop music.
Self-recorded by the band, Moore looped in longtime collaborator Kevin Bernsten from Developing Nations in Baltimore for an assist on the mix with Magnus Lindberg (Tribulation, Russian Circles, Lucifer, Hellacopters, Frida Hyvönen, etc) mastering the effort.
