The age of rock is far from over and The Vim Dicta
bring ample proof of that with their powerful jazz infused sound. The group have married 40s style blues with 60s psychedelic rock with a clash of ferocious reverberation. Lead vocalist Cori Elliott brings a hauntingly soulful vibe to Matt Tunney's aggressive riffs and Chris "the Fuse" Infusino's banging drums. The trio have released two uniquely progressive EPs and are steadily becoming favorites of the LA music scene.
The band's assertively combative single "Point Blank" from their EP Von Tango
, has a new music video directed by Katie Rose that we're pleased to be premiering. It features lead singer Cori Elliott as she battles with an evil Jungian projection of herself. The tall dark "sister", as the credits name Elliott's black clad double, kidnaps a naked Elliott with the help of her goons played by Tunney and the Fuse. All of the footage is kept exclusively in black and white, which serves fittingly for the intermittent 20s style shots of Elliott belting "I will not become you" in a blood-stained white dress. The video resonates with a riveting Gothic inspiration, reminiscent of Carl Theodor Dreyer's Vampyr
. This bloodcurdling theme turns out to be a perfect match for the intensity of The Vim Dicta's chilling single.
